Heart of Spirit

Heart of Spirit born on silent wings
from the four corners of the Earth

       Wisdom from the frozen wastes of the North
       legends from the old Norse and Inuit
       stories of the polar bears and ice.

       Knowledge from the ancient cities of the East
       tales of the Chrysanthemum and Lotus
       mantras from the guru and the Dalai Lama.

       Myths from the heat and glare of the South
       lessons from the White Woman and Anansi
       teachings from the shaman and the Pharaoh.

       Science from the skyscrapers of the West
       comprehension from the scientists and alchemists
       understanding from the philosophers and statesmen.

Heart of Spirit born on silent wings
from the four corners of the Earth

       Woven from strands of steel and ice,
       intertwined and twisted
              to make a new sense
              to make a new wisdom
              to make light in the darkness.

       Spun from spider silk and flower petals
       glittering and shining
              to show the way
              to help the weak
              to soothe and comfort

Heart of Spirit born on silent wings
from the four corners of the Earth

       How I wish for you to ever be mine
       embroidered and carved into my soul
              to light my way
              to make me see
              to let me be.
