Open Wide

Open wide
The temple doors

Let the winged birds
Of mercy and grace
Come to rest 
In the branches of
Your gentle heart

With fresh-gathered rushes,
Sweep the chambers
Of lingering regrets

Feel your footsteps fall
Upon the sacred ground;
The bones of your Ancestors,
Body of the one Great Mother

Listening,
As they whisper...

"Remember..."

Now is the time
To ignite the holy flame;
The ecstatic portal, 
That is 
Your eternal Heart 

Catch fire

Burn

Long
Bright
True
