Prayer for Spring

Submitted by OpenhandTeam on Tue, 07/19/2005 - 20:47

    May we reveal our abundance without shame.
    may we peel back our sleeping wintry layers...
    like snakeskins, like the silk chrysalis...

    like clothing cast off during love.
    May we unravel with abandon like lover's knots
    before knitting ourselves back to the heart.
    May we settle into our own rhythms as tides do
    within the borders of the moon's calling.
    May the music of our soul
    be accompanied by grand gestures
    and the persistent clapping of hummingbirds wings.
    May the milky fingers of the moon
    reach down nightly to cherish and unveil us.
    May we turn our bodies generously in it's light
    like tranquil fish glinting underwater,
    like precious stones.
    When we open our mouths to sing
    may the seasons pause in their long journey
    to listen and applaud.
