Wind At My Back

May the Wind be at my back today,
a friendly breeze that whispers
encouragement in my ear and
chases away all my anxious moments.

May the Sun warm my journey
and cast light on my path
so that I do not lose my way
or stumble over my distractions.

As I walk, may I be aware of the
finch's Melody and the artistry of
kaleidoscope Clouds, shifting, rolling,
recreating themselves and the world.

May the Words I speak
to my neighbor and to the
stranger be genuine and kind.
May the Words I speak to myself
be the same.

And, in the evening of the day,
may my Shadow speak kindly of me.
