Yiquan 9

Here is Poem 9, reproduced as before with permission of Heron Beecham

With the body relaxed, the muscles feel as if they have been suspended from a cloud;

Each and every hair on the body seems to sway at ease in the warmth of the wind.


Wipe your eyes and take a good look silently at your surroundings.

Concentrate the spirit, feel and detect all movements coming from the opponent.


The dragon plays with flying waves as they move up and down in the blue sea;

A violet hare calls to the moon as it emerges from behind the flowing clouds.


Infinite expressions are used to express the mood of boundlessness:
Quite possibly a magic teapot standing on a base comprised of six tortoises
