The heavy lies at the root of the light

the heavy
lies
at the root
of the light
the quiet
is
master
of the restless
  weighty
people
marching
all day
never
go far
from their
heavy wagons
not
tourists,
they stay
in their places
how can
the king
of a host
of wagons
flit
lightly
around
his kingdom?
if you
act
casually,
you lose
your roots
if you
rush
around,
you lose
your mastery
