An invisible cloak…

swimming in gold-med

Today, I’m thinking of all those — known to me and unknown to me — facing grief, loss, health challenges and worries, or any other form of pain and suffering…

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours,
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
may the protection of the ancestors be yours.
And so may a slow
wind work these words
of love around you,
an invisible cloak
to mind your life.

John O’Donohue

from Anam Cara, A Book of Celtic Wisdom

  1. What beautiful golden water and silhouettes. Lovely thoughts for those who are suffering – and there is always someone going through hard times somewhere.

  2. Golden light tracing silhouettes and that wonderful liquid surface… an arresting and beautiful image, Sherry. May all those you were sending comfort to with these words find it.

  3. Such a beautiful and sensitive photo Sherry…I love the silhouettes…and the deep meaning of those words…Serendipity…yesterday in church…we recite a short poem of John O’Donohue…from For Light…I’m saving it for a post…we do connect…
