A Blessing On Your House

“My dream Farm house” by Bindaas Madhavi

New Beginnings come in fall.

To my friends:

Divorcing ones rebuilding

A blessing on your house – new or newly yours

On those who stay with you.

To babies born amidst a plague

Live and cry and laugh;

Insist upon a brash existence

Move, and be moved, as long as you are here.

For mothers who carry

in arms or womb or heart

Breathe, and breathe easy

May endless devotion yield purpose;

May you rest and rise again.

To the wedding ones-

May joy diffuse through golden leaves, today shine in your hearts.

A new house – your house

Let love and joy abound.

To the dear ones – the lonely, happy, living, dying ones:

A blessing on your house

On your literal house

On the garden and on the lawn

May there be peace and space and growth.

A blessing on your head, on your literal head

On your work, your lives, your children

On your children’s children’s children.
