Metal & Yang
It is the beautiful bird that
a halberd, plumed with feathers,
As an arrow, piercing sharply,
As a bird, woaring into the clouds,
As wings, flying powerfully,
Are the halls to which our lord climbs.
not just of this life,
where the material aspects
are often little more that a trap.
Aspire instead to the world beyond - to Heaven.
All that is of this world perishes.
Only the spirit lives on.
