A Wednesday Prayer

A small thought
For the middle of your week
May Love and Kindness
Be what you seek.

May Compassion and Joy
Move throughout the land
May it pass from Hand to Heart
And from Heart to Hand.

May thoughts and deeds
Be of Peace and Care
May that come to pass
For everyone, everywhere.

Remember this Promise
And claim it with me
Metta–Unconditional Love–
Will set us all Free!

The Patterns of Life

Rain drops on leaf

When rain falls
Upon the leaf
Each drop enlarges
In strong relief

The patterns of life
That are etched there
The love, the pain
The joy, the care

Do not avoid the storm
And the rain
But study, instead
The path of each vein

To treasure the beauty
In each drop of rain
That flowers in wisdom
From each moment of pain

To see where you’re going
From where you’ve been
You can make paths
That are joyous again.

A Prayer of Love for Animals

Now is the perfect moment
To love all the creatures dear
As we never know how much longer
They will be with us here

All of our animal friends
Give our lives sweet meaning
Whether chasing a ball in the yard
Or their lovely feathers preening

Whether far, far away
In some exotic, distant land
Or right in your back yard
Under your loving hand

I thank you darling Nature
For all the gifts you’ve bestowed
For the stunning array of creatures
From jungle heat to arctic cold

For all the moments of joy
My own little friends provide
When the evening shades fall
Sitting right here by my side.
