Spirit of life

         And it was evening and morning,
                  and behold, it was very good.
                           —Genesis 1.31
                  


Spirit of life, even at rest
my body sparks with your life.

Your love flows through my heart,
my hands, my eyes, my mouth.

Spirit of delight,
may I see with your delight.

May I listen and hear
with your deep compassion.

May I touch with gentleness
and blessing.

May I taste with mindfulness;
may I smell in complete presence.

Spirit of grace,
may I live with your grace.
