When the very foundations,
That you stand upon,
Are shaken.
When the pillars
That support you
Begin to crumble,
And fade away.
Where then,
Do you turn for stability?
Turn inward
Turn inward
The calm heart
The very eye of the storm
Only there
Will you find a measure of true peace.
Very nice. A sacred tone. Do you think it is really true?

Returning to my own diversion, borrowing a bit, perhaps, from Mr. Orange:

There was a young man from Japan
Who, when asked if he could said, "I can"
Now whether he coulda
Or whether he shoulda
We might write on a beach in the sand.

For me, yes it is quite true.

I know a fine fella named Gregg
who was always entrapping his leg
in his hakama fold
every time that he rolled
so he left it hung up on a peg.

Re: Limerick challenge!

Whenever I treat someones illness,
With Ki-atsu I give it some stillness;
It helps with the healing
And improves their feeling,
And many leaves drug free and pill-less.

Re: Limerick challenge!

I have a friend who once saw a guy wearing a t-shirt that said, "I am the man from Nantucket."

Sorry to keep returning to this theme, but it is the best limerick ever. Has nothing to do with aikido, though.

When asked why he said,
"The rest are not read"
And he grinned for an hour or two.

Re: Limerick challenge!

When I hear of internal power,
A sign of here cometh the hour;
By looking elsewhere,
They say it's not there,
Oh dear, what a faithless shower!
