prayer for re-creation

Compassionate Creator,

Set me among these hills

in the grass.

Fill my spirit with the songs of birds

and the whispers of wind.

Let the tears flow

warmly and silently,

tempting my tongue with salty kiss,

Then turn me loose from this sorrow

releasing it back into creation

where it can drift slowly down

into the dust.

Let the scars on these trees

remind me of the healing that comes

after the wound.

Re-create me

with Your hands

into one filled with hope.


May is Mental Health Awareness Month.  This month, my blog posts will be focusing on ecotherapy–the capacity for nature and creation to provide healing.
