Borne on the Winds

The middle path understands harmony
whose sense of symmetry and balance
strikes notes of beauty.

The Zen of harmony bears a noble temperament—
is the height of balance that sounds our depths—
its spirit is borne on the winds.
Such gifts reach the summit of accord;
they touch the secret soul.

Vigilant, curious, observant,
balance and harmony belong to whomever endures.
They bring mastery of the middle way.
With this mind set, joy comes.

With the sweetness of harmony and rapture of rhyme,
people flower as envies,
anxieties, and perplexities fade.
