(Ivo Dominguez, Jr. and James C. Welch)

Thanks turns the wheel of the harvest
Thanks seals the circle of life
Thanks blesses all our beginnings
And thanks blesses the end

Spirit Am I

(Woman, Pagan, Blessed) am I,
Spirit am I.
I am the infinite within my soul
I have no beginning, I have no end
All this I am


Celebrate the Rain

(Alice Di Micele)

Celebrate the rain, falling down
Celebrate the green trees growing from the ground
Celebrate the new, paradise we found
Celebrate the rain falling down


i thank You God for most this amazing

(e.e. cummings)

I thank You God for most this amazing
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;
and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(I who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday;
this is the birthday of life and of love and wings:
and of the gay great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any – lifted from the no of all nothing
– human merely being doubt unimaginable You ?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
