I CHING HEXAGRAM #56 FIRE OVER MOUNTAIN

(The Wanderer: Lu)

 

“Success through smallness.
Perseverance brings good fortune
To the wanderer

 

Ah, the urge to seek knowledge

To travel, once again

Life is leaping into an adventure

Risky, yet rewarding

 

From the burning city asphalt

To the planet’s desert core

To swampy, humid muck

Finishing in finest, thin-spun mountain air

 

How I enjoy daring myself

Blaming it on the tossed coins

As I smile in anticipation

For age is a mindset

Until the body catches up

But there is still time…
