Water and the fresh green of ivy
Can you reach the waterfall with your fingers?
Feel the freshness on your face
" Under heaven nothing is more soft and yielding than water.
Yet for attacking the solid and strong, nothing is better
It has no equal.
The weak can overcome the strong
The supple can overcome the stiff."
(Lesson seventy-eight, Tao Te Ching)
Shallow water to cool our hot feet
Can you feel the little wavelets lapping around your ankles?
During the hot, hot days of summer
there is nothing better than water to energize us once again.
