    we meditated and intuitively casted a series of smaller spells that

    rolling in the grass we unravelling, all unravels, becoming rivers leading to you
    whose heart is the endless ember O
    you are the rainbow that scatters the known rise again and again, how many flowers are in me i wonder
    and we are the frolicsome hillsides the sun is your eye, with your vision we embrace
    we are dead and alive, in all lives, rejoiced, and remembered

    Forever we are drunk for love of Goddess God
    all day and night we sing your prays
    like sweet leaves of ness burning as they fall, burning in the soft radiance of your nurturing flame
    whose smoke whisp is the song of the sea
    to us a crashing song mashed by angels on round drum waves
    waves across our souls, we fly
    spirits akimbo this raving is not what it was
     toss seeds to the wind and drink the rain
