Secret Arts: Monsoon

Allow me
to illuminate
the secret power
of water.

Since time immemorial
the power of water
has held a daunting duality.
For from water
comes the lifeblood of the planet,
the ability to grow
redwood retreats
snapdragon sunrises
And grassy groves.
Yet the same
life-giving hand
can also deal death,
for too much water
can drown.

So, too,
is the art of the body.
Water can flow
and it can crash.
The beauty of water
and the body,
lies in the harmony
between the flow
and the crash.

Daunting, indeed.
