From the forest branches fading
Self-sacrifice to a huge silence.
Dark formlessness settled over all
Of land and water.As shadows, as particles,
Fused with endless night.I came to rest
At the altar of the stars.Alone, amazed,
Upwards with hands clasped and said,
"Sun, you have removed
Your rays: show now your loveliest,
That I may see the Person who dwells in
me as in you."
During this season may we pause
To feel the presence of Love,
See the Light of spiritual awareness,
And enjoy the peace of our Universe
As we recognize our Oneness with everything.
