In China,
Kuan Yin (who represents compassion),
is sometimes portrayed holding a willow branch
symbolizing her capacity to bend
in the face of the most fierce storms
and winds of life
without being broken.

I was lost, but now am found,
was fear, but now am love –
from sunrise to compassion,
the willow guides my way.

Sunlit days and starlit nights,
seasons change from green to gold.
Blackbirds perching row on row
await the winter’s chill.

Worrier to warrior,
completeness is my quest.
With each breath out I die,
breathing in, I’m born again.

I was lost, but now I’m found,
was fear, but now I’m love –
from sunrise to compassion,
the willow guides my way.
