how navigate emotions?
which road to take?
where do I start?
would she still love me?
what am I not seeing?
am I getting closer?
throws & parallels
what is beauty?
Kuei Mei / A Loveless Marriage
The Thunderstorm inseminates
the swelling Lake,
then moves on
where the Lake cannot follow:
We view passing trials
in the light of Eternal Truths.
Any action will prove unfortunate.
This is at best a Marriage of Convenience.
We find ourselves in desperate straits,
a position of weakness,
and we are tempted to pay dearly for a remedy.
A drowning man isn't picky
about who throws him a rope.
The rescue offered to us now is undesirable.
It may pull us out of this sticky situation,
but will cause even greater predicaments
down the road.
We don't obligate ourselves in this way.
We are selling our future for a quick fix.
The princess bride dresses humbly,
out of respect for her commoner groom.
Her bridesmaids outshine her by far.
She is a treasure.
Left alone in her marriage,
she remains content in her illusions.
Sometimes a one-eyed man is blessed
for what he can't see.
Thunder beneath the Lake's surface.
I allow myself plenty of sheltered rest
while awaiting a clear sign to follow.
Thunder from the Lake --
the lulling, rhythmic roar of the faithful tide,
eternally wearing away the stone
of the shoreline,
forever obedient to the phases of the moon.
The pull of the moon on the tide
is the Following called for now.
As mighty as the tide is in its own right,
it is ever the puppet of the invisible,
irresistible gravity of the moon.
What cyclical forces pull me along?
Am I futilely attempting to resist
a natural attraction?
