Tai Chi Teacher

Chinese character for long life

Silent attention.
Precise reply:
truthfulness with tact
or blunt opinion.

Balanced on both feet,
stretching for a thought,
eyes reach,
hands mold air into ideas

from center.

‘Now!’ he thinks
Before you see it.

The long form begins and ‘now’ becomes one movement lasting minute after minute after minute
all the years, each moment in all the years, are here.

Easy gait,
lifted head,
steady eye,
quick smile,

from center.
