Drifting Painting by Alfred Thompson Bricher

The Tao drifts
it can go left or right
everything lives by its grace
but it doesn’t speak
when its work succeeds
it makes not claim
it has no desires
shall we call it small
everything turns to it
but it wields no control
shall we call it great
therefore the sage never acts great
thus he can do great things

from The Taoteching
