to step on Mother Earth
connecting me to her
and all that grows beneath
and rises above to meet the breath of day.
My lungs to breathe in Life.
My eyes to watch Moon
cycle in remembrance of
my fragility and fiercness.
to touch the Sun’s warmth in my heart
and know his fire burn to ash
when I must begin anew.
My nose to smell lilac and rose, pine and rain, and doggie breath.
My ears to hear crow and whispered wind, roaring waves,
the deep stillness of You within.
Lips and arms to hug and kiss you…
my love, my Bean, my dear sweet friends,
the children of this Earth,
each and every one of you.
Happy day of gratitude and joy.
May compassion be the way for this day
with gentleness and love for all – even the hard ones.
Munay. Aho. Amen.
