Spring Equinox 2011

The night
of the Full Moon of March
and Spring Equinox eve
was full of fierce wind and storm
and torrential rains...

But the morning rain
opened into an afternoon
of sunshine,

calm, and a beauty unimagined
as people
came together to walk the labyrinth...

for this change
of season
and to offer prayers
and healing for the people of Japan
and all affected by the quakes and tsunami...

Little Pikachu of Japan...

on the hand of the youngest son of a friend of mine
danced in and out of the labyrinth
as even the adults...

found a time for play
and levity...
in between
the silence
and the time out of time...

to touch the heart
of self and each other
and those around the world
in loss and sorrow
and in the joy of our day together...

Another
surprise of the day
was harpist Christine Tulis
joining us
with music divine
and the poetry of Rumi...

 It was a feast
for body, mind, and soul...

And when
the day was complete...
this infused water
from the copper Dragon Singing Bowl...

went back to the earth
with our love and prayers
for Japan
and for our precious world...
