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...

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

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
