Prayer for a misty May morning

I turn my face to the soft May morning air

And ask protection and healing this day

From gray May morning to violet twilight

From violet twilight through the deepness of night

I ask for:

Humour of crow

Wit from the raven

Warmth from my cup of tea

Intrepidness of the beetles that cross my path each day

Curiosity of the cats who accompany me on my walk

Joy of leaping squirrel

Cleansing of mist in the air

Clearness of the scent of the blooming jasmine

Luminescence of the new green leaves on the liquidamber

Be with me and all I love throughout this day

And through the between times

And blessings of night.
