VI. Riding the Bull Home
Mounting the bull, slowly I return homeward. The voice of my flute intones through the evening.
Measuring with hand-beats the pulsating harmony, I direct the endless rhythm.
Whoever hears this melody will join me.
This struggle is over; gain and loss are assimilated. I sing the song of the village woodsman, and play the tunes of the children. Astride the bull, I observe the clouds above. Onward I go, no matter who may wish to call me back.
-Nyogen Senzaki/Paul Reps
Downward descent. Momentum carries back to center and peace sets the pace. Effort tips toward ease. Trust in what lies ahead. Black is in alignment and in tandem.
