Triple Haiku of Wisdom

Water flows wisely,
And as freely blows the wind;
One must learn to bend.

What is soft will rise;
Instead the hard will demise;
Is this a surprise?

Way of heaven take,
For the sake of all living,
Break with all striving.



Note: First published in December 2015 and inspired by readings from the Tao Te Ching; slightly revised ~ i.e. mild corrections made so that it is truly haiku!
