A Prayer for Peace


In February and March I’m sharing some of the best of my Love Letters to celebrate five years in business! You can find more like these in my e-book Breathing Amazement. 

As I write this to you it is raining. There is relief in this brief downpour. The rain a refreshing pause.

Today I pulled the Mother of Flames from the Daughters of the Moon Tarot.

Chantico, Aztec Mother. Keeper of volcanos and hearth fires.

I think about eruptions. Old wounds spilling out.

Then I think about baking and I make the cleaning of my home a prayer for peace instead.

Yesterday I sat with my mother. I was tender and wondering how to accept all that I have received. Where to go next, as I turn and turn again into new ways of being.

My Mother’s Narcissus, Lilacs, Blue Bells and Forget-Me-Nots

And I want to smell the sweetness of flowers

Feel the rhythm of drum beats in my belly 
as I sound all that is and will be

My life an offering for peace

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
