Prayer of an Opening Heart

Show me 
Where I am blind

Open the eyes of my heart
So that I may see you
Shining in the temple;

As my own reflection,
And that of my sisters
And every living thing

Take up your residence
In my sacred body

Quench my thirst
From the river
Of your holy breast;
The liquid fire
Of longing

Feed me 
The seeds of
Solitude
Intimacy
Revelation

Grow me humble
Grow me gentle
Grow me kind
Grow me fierce;
Grounded in your
Living presence

Fashion my wings from
States of grace

And send me off
Full of you;
To fly
