From Sacred Fire, 1998, by Nancy Wood
Every day I bathe myself in light
and write my name in stars across the sky.
Every day I am the Fire of Life, burning
with the intensity of the Sun. The Wind cannot
blow away such passion, nor can Rain drown
the ash of love, knowing it will burn again.
Every day I bathe myself in light and dance
to the music that rivers make on their
way to the sea. The Earth hears my prayers
and gives my body a familiar form,
feminine in nature, strong and surviving.
Every day I write my name
in stars across the Universe: I am love.
The power of my flame
rises with the fury of my dreams.
