Tao Te – 55

open to being filled by Tao
is similar to being a newborn
the venomous will not harm
a beast’s tooth  not tear
a bird of prey not carry you away
with soft bones and out-of-phase muscles
but a firm grip
inexperienced with sexual congress
nonetheless whole
you have strength
to cry on key all the day
harmony is yours

harmony becomes a practice
practice expresses enlightenment

to rush is not wise
unstrained breath leads a long return
untrained energy becomes exhaustion
weariness is not the way
that contrary to Tao is but froth
