Aikido is an art like a book that's page-less,
Spiritually zen like, modern? no, ageless,
It's Infinite so it has no ceiling,
Forever revealing, restoring and healing.
Some say the techniques were there for the stealing,
But such is ego for it has no true feeling;
For with feeling and dedication you will understand,
Thus the truth passes to you, shared from hand to hand.
For all old Masters were offering, but who could see,
The blind had to steal but what they stole was empty;
When I hear such voices I hear no poetry, it's rhyme-less,
So I return to my centre, moving stillness, timeless.
