Solstice Prayer

Oh, tender, green Earth,
The deepest and calmest of green,
Flowing over yards, culverts, meadows and valleys,
and gracing the mountains tops
with pristine
satin gowns of grace and delight,
I hold my breath,
At the splendour of your exquisite radiant and emerald light,
This longest day and shortest night.

Oh, tender green Earth,
Lush are your summer dreams,
beholding the stories in heaven
yet to unfold.

Oh, how I hear you!
Beckon me no more,
I am here, standing firm
on this tender Earth, Oh, Mother!
And yet, I must not,
Must not be careless
with my walk,
be not careless with my talk,
be not unkind with our space,
be not wasteful with our treasures,
With every passing moment,
May we give light and surrender with gratitude
To the beauty of this solitude.

Your rivers flow.
Your skies beholding of every secret
left untold.
May I remember where I came from,
and draw from your deepest well
so that my stardust dances
with lightning, and sings with thunder.
Awaken my heart,
And may I find the path
in which to embrace the birth of my tenderness
oh, tender, green Earth, Oh Mother!
I hold my breath, at the splendour of your exquisite radiant and emerald light,
This longest day and shortest night.

Oh Solstice! Oh Joy! Bring me the light of the longest day!
Ban all wars from my heart, filter my mind with peaceful wish,
and prayer, and thought.
Oh delight, of shortest night, stir my soul with
sacred longing, voices of home unbound.

Oh, tender green Earth,
Lush are your summer dreams,
beholding the stories in heaven
yet to unfold.
I hold my breath,
At the splendour of your exquisite radiant and emerald light,
This longest day and shortest night.
