Day Three Hundred and Thirty-Three: Spokes

Spokes:  August 29, 2009
We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.
— Tao Te Ching
Spokes II
