Solstice Prayer

I’m sending out a prayer today;

that caresses the belly of the golden canyons,
and skims the surface of the deep blue sea…

may all hearts break open
may all hearts become soft
may we come to know there is no other
may we ignite the eternal flame of love

I’m sending out smoke signals;

over the vast arctic tundra,
to the towering heights of the holy Himalayas…

may all hearts break open
may all hearts become soft
may we come to know there is no other
may we ignite the eternal flame of love

I’m sending up a flare tonight;

that lights the sky like a brilliant cosmic lantern;
its dying ember-streams illuminating the darkness below…

may all hearts break open
may all hearts become soft
may we come to know there is no other
may we ignite the eternal flame of love

I’m beating the drum for humanity;

I’m sending out a prayer
on summer solstice…

won’t you join me?
