Plea for Wisdom
I invoke the power of the Elements And ask that they bring each of us wisdom. I ask the earth to give us wisdom Solid like the ground beneath us all As old as the planet Bringing forth new knowledge like the seeds from the soil. I ask the water to give us wisdom Changing with our needs like the tide Wandering here and there like the rivers Sustaining new thoughts as the rain sustains new growth.
I ask the fire to give each of us wisdom Burning away old patterns when they no longer serve us Lighting up creativity like sparks from a bonfire Lingering long like the smoldering coals. I ask the air to give us wisdom Brilliant ideas like a hurricane whirling Clarity from a freshening breeze And the constancy of the air we breathe. I thank the powers of the Elements And thank them for their gifts now bestowed upon us all.
So Mote It Be.
