Like water

20150130_marcus-antoninus_8th-verse

Embracing the wisdom of water
is to provide that gentle touch,
that accepts without strife,
and shoulders the hardest tasks,
becoming one with the Universe.
Living by the example of water,
is to dwell close to the Earth,
choosing silence over noise,
understanding what is enough,
and dancing to the rhythms of Life
without competition
nor reproach.

Marcus Antoninus
Freely interpreted and modified after verse 8 of Tao Te King by Lao Tzu.
