In Praise of Shadows

The absence of light

O gem of all things

We forget where the ground _we forget the earth Blessed be the divine green goddess

I offer thee my body_ Red sun

I fear nature

invoke the spirits that bind

I call the yellow fire and black earth

Sun Gold Sun

Sorrow nature Sorrow

Womb void Womb

Blessed be sun blessed be the sacred light Awaken

Light swells around the body and engorges it In the enormity of this light become the prayer

Life beyond means World without end Reign supreme
