|Hexagram 25 of the I Ching: Wu Wang|
is a 'non-sociable number'
for it does not group itself
in trios to chat,
the smallest square
equals five times five,
nearly a perfect number,
the number of grace
Some say twenty-five
predicts a difficult childhood,
but the hexagram from the I Ching
shows strength squared.
Perhaps in September that hexagram
with its sturdy foundation
is the house we need to survive winter,
safe within ourselves.
Meditation says: Seek joy in each moment,
balance in all things,
squared, steady, solid.
This little poem was fun to write, not drawn from nature or travel, but a little searching online to find fanciful reactions for September 25, today's date.
