Winter Solistice Prayer by Mary Saracino

”Deep night, Dark nightNight of the longest sighSoulful night, Sacred nightNight of the longest dreamsCold night, Holy nightNight of unfurling desiresWomb of the world, Birther of hopeBringer of peace and good willPray, pray for all good thingsThat suffering for all will endThat life will thrive and generosity reignIn the hearts of all humankindThat joy will rise and children will flyOn wings of prosperityOh hear our plea, this silent nightWhen the moon is round in the skyWhen hopes are high and eyes are widewith delight and audacityMay Love prevail tonight, and alwaysLeading us back to our SourceMay we dance with the dark, without hesitation or fearAnd savor her promise of plentyDeep nightDark nightNight of the longest sighMay our weary hearts stay vigilant and receptiveTo all that is loving and dear”-Mary Saracino
