Happy thanks Giving!

My friend send me this wonderful and beautiful soul. I love to share with you:

 

Gratitude to Mother Earth, sailing through night and day–

and to her soil: rich, rare and sweet

in our minds so be it.

 

Gratitude to Plants, the sun-facing light-changing leaf

and fine root hairs: standing still through wind

and rain; their dance is in the flowing spiral grain

in our minds so be it.

 

Gratitude to Air, bearing the soaring Swift and the silent

Owl at dawn. Breath of our song

clear spirit breeze

   in our minds so be it.

 

Gratitude to Wild Beings, our brothers, teaching secrets,

freedoms and ways; who share with us their milk;

self- complete, brave, and aware

in our minds so be it.

 

Gratitude to Water: clouds, lakes, rivers, glaciers;

holding or releasing; streaming through all

all bodies salty seas

in our minds so be it.

 

Gratitude to the Sun: blinding pulsing light through

trunks of trees, through mists, warming caves where

bears and snakes sleep–he who wakes us–

in our minds so be it.

 

Gratitude to the Great Sky

who holds billions of stars–and goes yet beyond that–

beyond all powers, and thoughts

and yet is within us–

Grandfather Space

The Mind is his Wife.

 

so be it.

 

                         after a Mohawk prayer.
