A Beauty Blessing by John O Donohue

As stillness in stone to silence is wed
May your hearts be somewhere a God might dwell
As a river flows in ideal sequence
May your soul discover time is presence
As the moon absolves the dark of distance
May thought-light console your mind with brightness
As the breath of light awakens colour
May the dawn anoint your eyes with wonder
As spring rain softens the earth with surprise
May your winter places be kissed with light,
As the ocean dreams to the joy of dance
May the grace of change bring you elegance
As clay anchors a tree in light and wind
May your outer life grow from peace within
As twilight fills night with bright horizons
May beauty await you at home beyond
