Rippling forward

We leave the past behind us in eddies
While the now ripples forward
Each passing moment heads to the future
A left turn; a right turn, will change your life for ever

The art of doing nothing

Do not read or think upon the evening meal
Nor tarry in worry like the constant turning wheel
Forget all things undone; there is no finishing
Be still awhile and watch the world

Let fall the things of doing and dwelling
The work, the leisure and telling
Release yourself from relentless toil; there is no finishing
Be still awhile and watch the world

Some arts, long forgotten and trampled down
Are lost yet must be found
The most creative and restorative of these
Is the art of doing nothing, with ease

Let the dust settle and fall where it will
Don’t be lost in constant movement
Relax about the things left to do; there is no finishing
Be still awhile and watch the world

Do not seize the day with constant doing
Bide some time in vacant focus
No matter how hard you think it; there is no finishing
Be still awhile and watch the world
