A Winter Prayer Poem
I am grateful to you Snowy Owl Take me from the West, where the sun sets, Where my mind sinks into its depths, To your home in the North, Cold northern winds that test and strengthen. And on to the East, place of new light. May I have the courage to make this journey To face my tests with dignity and grace, To see through my places of darkness And release what is old and unneeded.
Snowy Owl, you are beautiful! Fly by me with still, silent wings, I know that you bring, not death, But spiritual rebirth-- May I be renewed, as a child, From moment to moment. Winter is, after all, only a point On the Great Circle of Life. And whether it be difficult or easy I know that it is good.
