This poem was first posted in 2018, inspired by Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above, and I Ching 31, which appeared in the envelope collage I did based on a linear print by Joan Mitchell.

I’ve been meaning to redo this Beach I Ching with a new collage ever since I first posted it, a year and a half ago. I thought the original collage I did was too busy. This one better represents the fire over/under fire of the hexagram.
