IV. Catching the Bull
I seize him with a terrific struggle.
His great will and power are inexhaustible.
He charges to the high plateau far above the cloud-mists,
Or in an imperceptible ravine he stands.
He dwelt in the forest a long time, but I caught him today! Infatuation for scenery interferes with his direction. Longing for sweeter grass, he wanders away. His mind still is stubborn and unbridled. If I wish him to submit, I must raise my whip.
-Nyogen Senzaki/Paul Reps
Conflict, battling one’s self. Sage is back, fighting for wisdom. Diagonal lines in action. Parchment briefly appears. All against one.
