Flux and Flow


Emotions can color life brightly;
letting emotions run amok courts disaster.

In the spectre of crises
emotions' immediacy may save us.
Yet emotions frequently assault--
with an echoing rebuke of guilt:

      the caution of fear's siege,
      the corruption of envy,
      the hollowness of revenge,
      the brimstone of anger.

The sage pause reflectively in contemplation,
watching emotions' flux and flow.
