homeward bound





The image of the virago, scratching like a tiger cat, fighting like a raging boar.

The Lines (base to top)

Think before rushing forward
Someone's crying in the night
Singing in the rain: they laugh
Not a fish in the kitchen
Melons concealed under leaves
Even worse when the cries stop


Heaven over wind. The yin line at the bottom seeks to conquer all five yang, keeping men like piggies in a pen.

Too darn hot.
