Being a prayer

Deep within there is a wholeness
Travelling by sound
May your wings never fear any darkness
May you simply be.
All around there are fractures
Healed by the ground
May your feet walk through each fissure
May you simply be.
The hand to the trunk of the sage of branches
An eye to the sky in the wisdom of air
A heartbeat touched by our gentle turning
This is our grounding
This is our being a prayer.
