A poem about self-discovery, based on hexagrams from the IChing.

Happenstance is but a way of words,

The stumbling path of fools;

Yet a trail met in the wooded night

Cares not for weathered rules.

 

Deaf and dumb goes the traveller

Toward the outward shape;

Glancing not beneath the rock and leaf,

A sketch of the human ape.

 

But in vapid searching one still learns

To scratch the inner vein.

Eyes roll and bangles burn in that light—

The answers seem insane...

 

For piercing the learning dark we see

New visions clear and clean,

Struggling with our ever cluttered minds

To grasp what they might mean:

 

A white-winged horse and a graceful moon

Seek form in mountain fire,

While I, the fool, not too simple yet

Of ornaments do tire.
