Koshi, the gateway to Harmony,
Aikido's base, set Karma free,
Koshi, organic divinity,
The gateway called humility.
Center, the gateway to Budo love,
The supporting hand of breath, the glove,
Center, holy, not some martial fashion,
Center the gateway called compassion.
Joining together as heaven and earth,
Complimentary, now complete worth,
From the center of center shines the Aiki light,
Like the aiki cross of the star at night.
The story of Aiki, the story Samsara,
The oneness, the floating bridge...Hara,
The wondrous workings, the way of peace,
Ki flows, life grows, Aikido knows, Release!

I tell people but they don't understand,
When I tell them bout heaven earth and man,
Teaching, they look at at me like I'm barmy,
Me, the universe and the kami army.
I talk spirit and they wonder why?
There is no you only I and I,
I say Ai is love and harmony,
Minds clunk and click, they smile nervously,
They come, I've already met,
What I say I know they will forget,
So they relate to what others past state,
Don't they realize that past is too late.
But some will maintain spirit as the main frame,
Always was and always will be again,
In the void there's no body and no mind,
Just a sword of budo, martially kind.
kI of kindness the light ends the blindness,
I leave this riddle and I hope they find this,
In yo, I strike the earth with my holy Jo,
And all over the world appears an aiki flow.
Job done, I wait for others to see what's been seen,
I wait for others to awaken and live the dream,
When they see that peace is the true time stream,
And life is here now, where it's always been.
