I Ching
by Martin Burke

Pushing Upward

the receptive earth and gentle wind

see the superior man
have no fear

he adds, grain by grain
sand to the great mountain

                             *

actions meet with confidence
good fortune

if one is sincere, even with small offerings,
there is no blame

you enter an empty city

the king makes a gift of a mountain
no blame

perseverance brings success
step by step by step

epically in darkness
one must persevere
