Idunna

Holy Idunna,
You see such promise in each tender seed.
Every vein of every leaf has been tenderly drawn
and creased by Your caring hands,
every petal of every living blossom
gently parted by Your deft fingers.

Would You then ignore the hearts of Your children?
We are scarred, and we are scared.
We push and we strive -  wanting, needing, rushing
through the sacred moments of our lives.
We never see Your blessings;
we never see the blessed synchronicity
with which You fill our lives.
Such care, such joyful simplicity, is so very foreign to us.

Teach us, Goddess, to treasure those things
You so lovingly place within us.
We miss so much in our mad, mad rush
away from all that is precious within ourselves.
Teach us, Goddess, to cherish the littlest blessings in our lives
So that when we finally pass from this world
We may pour forth these delicate jewels of memory
Into Your waiting hands.
