The New Year Prayer

by Venkat


These prayers I send
as birds into the sky
Gentle, as flowers bend
to lift clouds from the eye

May this happy new year
bring the Sun to our hearts
To find our near and dear
see the love, we held in parts

May we feel once again
the waters we came from
May we seal wounds of pain
from waters we leave some

May we see the cold we carry
freezing those birds around
May we know tempers we marry
vaporizing love’s nuanced sound

May we be the quiet water
we are meant to be so
To touch every matter
in their own shape tip to toe

May we find edges to hold
with no floor to cling upon
May we flow, as sages told
love stays not, if we not move on
