The Birchwood Blessing

I bless you with the breathing of the trees
and the silence of your soul

I bless you with the renewal of many waters
and the rolling grace of tides

I bless you with moonsong
revealing your heart’s true longing

I bless you with sober eyes 
to drink the visions of transfiguration 

I bless you with hitchhiking prophets
and feet as swift as chariots

I bless you with disappearance 
that leads to new horizons 

I bless you with the break of day
furnace of the sun
melting all your misdrawn arrows into golden rivers
that run to the forgiving sea

I bless you with this parting peace
all that is whole and rejoicing
