Healing Prayer

healing
O Earth, wrap me
in your leaves -
heal me.

Let me fall
under Earthbreast -
feed me.

Sing to me
under the round nests
in your cedar trees.

Embrace me
when I sleep
in your shade.

Let your eye keep me
protected and cool -
hide me.

Warm me
with naked summer
kisses and

Cloister me
Around
with wild flowers.

Refresh me
with springs
and living waters.

Draw me down
into your well
of rebirth and

Let my wounds
Open
and empty

Into your wonderful
Compost
heap.

Then fill me
with your fruit
and bread, start over,

Let my wounds
become fertile
gardens and

Let me be,
let me live
again.
