Tao Te – 2

here beauty is enveloped by the ugly
joy is set off by suffering

having walks blind to not-having alongside
difficult and easy vibrate fore and aft
long and short are caught in perspective
high and low are known by the other
voice and sound ring changes within without
front and back circle around around

in such a time of best and worst
wise acts artless
wise saying still
ten thousand choices pile upon one another
no end in sight

create without a result
work without a memorial
act in time and move on
flow is enough
