May you walk with Beauty,
the beauty of all that You are.
May you laugh out full and loud,
your belly shaking you to tears.
May the rain wash away your grief, worry, and pain,
and all that has been hard
into the earth,
so that young blades of grass
like new beginnings,
and wildflowers small and sweet
with fresh new tomorrows
sprout from the soil
moist and fertile with all you have shed.
May Mother Earth gather you close into her brown arms
so you feel her green hair brush against your face
as you gaze into her blue ocean eyes
so you may drink deep of her Love
as she awakens you to yours.
May the sun and the moon and the stars
shine their Light upon you,
awakening you to the Magic that you are.
May the thrush serenade you
so you may hear your own Song.
May the eagle lift and teach you
that you can, indeed, Soar.
May you, then, sing your own Song
— the Truth that lives in your bones —
of the Joy that ever pulses through you
unceasing as ocean waves.
May you dance and delight
in the arms of Big Love
first, as Beloved to yourself,
then, with another,
and with all that you love and birth and create.
May Passion shake you open
to the holy ecstasy of your body,
crumbling everything that holds you back,
keeps you small or silent or untrue,
so you feel, without a doubt,
the Sacredness of you.
May the tiger and the cheetah
stride beside you
so their power and protection
kindle your fierceness and your fire
to do only what you can do
in — and for — our world.
May you gather
all that you have learned in 2020
and all the ways you have grown
and add them to your crown.
May your heart and Soul sing
your desires, dreams, and delights
out sweet, out loud,
as you spread your arms wide
to welcome, invite, and embrace the New Year — 2021.
