Centered in the universe my heart accepts the flow,
of gentle light, love that transcends all pain within the heart.
As a tree planted near the great waters, I sprout to life.
I am part of the blessing bounty of God's everlasting harvest.
My seeds fall and bury themselves in the earth,
leaving the pain and growing new possibilities.
I breathe the air around me, exhaling the spirit of renewal and hope
abound from me now.
The rains and water from the rivers edge flow through me
as the power of God's faith expands me.
If fire should cross my path then in the midst
I shall release the old of me and rise renewed in the ashes.
For nature, spirit and I are one in the never-ending journey of life.
