In General SPIRAL Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #15 New 12-14-2011 11:29 AM
Some people enter the spiral of violence,
They call it self defence or the opposite of silence;
Some people enter a whirwind romance,
Like a leaf dancing happily but but no base, no stance.

Some people enter the spiral of hate,
Revenge and destruction and that is their fate;
Some people see the spiral as power,
But it's just the vessel, the path, sweet or sour?

Some people talk about spirals of in yo ho,
But do they know why spirals appear and then they go?
Some spirals relate to a harmonious flow,
Some spirals don't alas and that's not the way to go.

And when you're at peace, a state of ultimate humility,
The spiral of peace reaches out, true strength, our own servility,
Bereft of fear yet all is clear and one plus one is one,
No fight, no enemies far or near, Aikido you've become.

Thanks Carina. Will visit your blog soon. The article was very good, very similar to one I wrote a couple of years ago. I like relating the natural phenomena of the universe to Aikido in such ways. Maybe I should do more poems relating to such.

Lovely. I find the Imposition of self as discussed particularly fascinating. Emotion imposing upon the heart's state, heart imposing upon the mind, mind upon spirit.

Thanks for another nice poem, my readers sure will be happy, did you see the last comments? But I think this interesting article of Aikido Journal will complement your post nicely .
