Blessing

Earth mother, star mother,
You who are called by
a thousand names,
May all remember
we are cells in your body
and dance together.
You are the grain
and the loaf
That sustains us each day,
And as you are patient
with our struggles to learn
So shall we be patient
with ourselves and each other.
We are radiant light
and sacred dark
–the balance–
You are the embrace that heartens
And the freedom beyond fear.
Within you we are born
we grow, live and die–
You bring us around the circle
to rebirth,
Within us you dance
Forever.

–Starhawk
