A Winter Prayer

 

IMG_2862A time of stripping back,

Of lifeless leaves and dead wood

falling away,

Their latent energy absorbed and embraced

by mother Earth,

A necessary season

in the cycle of life

As old makes way for new

That all may flourish.

 

So help me Spirit,IMG_3382

In the silence of my soul,

To welcome winter seasons

Stripping away lifeless leaves

of false self, the dead wood

Of quick fix and falsehood

That my true self may live and breathe

In the presence of the One,

A vital investment for springs

And summers to come,

When “flowers appear on the earth

And the season of singing has come”.
