homeward bound





Pure yin, the female principle. The supreme, the fundamental, receptive force. It is auspicious.

The Lines (base to top, plus overall conclusion)

Crunch of white frost underfoot
Turning heads in shifting winds
One state destroys another
Grain bundled in gunny sacks
Court folk clad in yellow robes
Black and yellow dragon blood
In the long run it's all good


Earth over earth.

Every line is broken. Pure yin cannot hold. Transformative.
