What is chi?

According to Chinese philosophy
it is the circulating life energy
inherent in all things.
Chi spirals spin the hours.
Bringing balance to whomever it spins for.
Slowly then even slower still the spiral...
...comes to a fleeting stop.
Only to reverse its direction...
... and spin again.
Back and forth and then forth and back.
From sun-up to sundown....
....and all through the night...
...never ending constant movement.
No more daylight savings time.
More like daylight spending time.
Sun-up comes later and sundown comes quicker.
Still the chi spiral brings balance
to whom it spins for.
This change of time has pushed my clock forward.
I arise even earlier now than before.
Not wishing to waste one precious moment.
I crave early morning meditation
with my hot cup of java.
I watch the spinning chi spiral spin for me.
And feel the symmetry of my life energy.
