A Prayer for Yule

May you be protected and blessed from the sun’s rising

Through the twilight and the dark of night and the moon’s rising

Blessings of the sun on the last of the yellow leaves of the cottonwood

The sweet calls of the black crests of the towhee

The gentle morning breeze

The early warmth of the coming day

The half moon gleaming high overhead

The soft patter of the water in a fountain

The greeting of a raven

The smile in people’s eyes

The shine of the decorations

May that blessing stay with you this day

This night, this evening of wonder
