  The way
that can be
talked of
is not

the eternal
way
The names
that can be
spoken
are not
the eternal
name
imagined
as source
of heaven
and earth

it is
without name
imagined
as mother
of all creatures
she has
an infinity
of names
to see
the core,
dissolve
desire
if desire
remains in us
we see only
its outcome
the two
are
the same
their names
change
as they grow
mysteries
compounding
Mystery
opening
to the secret
of being
