Poem: Wild Be Your Spirit

The wind ever bears its gifts...


wild be your spirit
knowing be your grace
purpose be your destiny
upon field and farm a found place
behold these offerings brought this day
within be Creation's telling way
destroy not this messenger that ever calls
to understand the guiding love of All.
