Standing on the floating bridge like a baby in a cot,
Standing on the floating bridge, know when I am and when I'm not,
Watching others search for it's meaning so they read, go back to the start,
Alas, the floating bridge can't be seen by mind but only by the heart.
Whoever stands in hara, Aikido attitude, acting in the moment, now,
Also stands there with me to them I take a bow,
Standing on the floating bridge the motion flows through like perfection,
Standing on the floating bridge in a space of loving protection.
Standing on the floating bridge, all is a flow, there is no ridge,
Standing on the floating bridge, all is alive, no mind baggage,
No enemy inside or outside or ever,
No separation, oneness, forever.
Standing on the floating bridge there is no against, how could there be?
There is no two, only one and zero, timeless, no you, no me, we.
Dynamic yet flowing, Aikido growing, moving throwing, taking off, landing,
Joy manifested with life force invested, from the centre of centre..............
