Four Winds

And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:31

Four Winds

Dark night steamy and warm
the stars overhead spin our dancing
jingling ringing dust and sweat
mingling in the circle we form together,

Your prayerful silence is our north
the ancient mother brings western wisdom
sweet child dancer brings the eastern light
and I offer the compassion from the south.

Together and alone we tread
sacred circle crating life
relationship born of presence
interdependence rising from our strength
common need, aching and whole.

The night is dark and we are not
alone nor lost nor forsaken
Creator with all directions comes
to meet us in this circle love comes
to find us as we pray.

and a steady drum.
