A touch of Tao

Keeping still
The body quivers
Listen to the songs of immortals

Cold air plunges down to Kun
Fire the bubbling water
Steam rises up to Qian
Qi brightens and cleans the home for shen

One heavenly cycle completed
Followed by others
Clouds, first dark then bright
No more forms or emptiness

When wu wei stops
From sheer darkness, it appears
Shimmering lights
Colourful diamonds

Beautiful, magnificent
The golden flower
A touch of Tao
To climb the stairs of heaven
