"Tao invoked invoking Tao"
an interpretation of Lao Tzu


What's known as Tao:
That is not Tao

You seek a name for it
It is not there

No name for silent space;
Names for sound and motion.

Serene: mystery shines.
Disturbed: desire and death unfold.

Disturbed, serene ... a single Womb:
a Goddess deep, subtle, and deeply still

Threshold of mystery
