A prayer for the beauty of a summer morning

I ask the blessings of a beautiful summer day. May it surround me and those I love from early morning’s light through the heat of day and the cool of night.

I ask blessing and protection of nine flowers of early summer.

From the purple glow of the canopies of jacaranda
The cheer of coreopsis
The greeting of a pale yellow Japanese iris
The beauty of roses
The multiples of shooting star hydrangeas
The glory of nasturtiums
The etherealness of the short lived day lilies
The perfusion of lavendar
The spice of red geraniums
Be with me this day
Be with us through the beauty of twilight
Keep us as we sleep
So mote it be.
