On Being

Bennacht

Blessings for the New Year! The words of John O’Donohue are so beautiful to bring us into the new year.  To hear the full poem as read by John, please click on the above link.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
May the clarity of light be yours,
May the fluency of the ocean be yours,
May the protection of the ancestors be yours.

And so may a slow
Wind work these words
Of love around you,
An invisible cloak
To mind your life.

    I am a little late. This was originally posted as a seque to 2016, but John O’Donohue’s poetry works for any time of the year.
