A Gift to Spirit
by Ann MacKenzie

Little One, go to the river
                   take a bucket
                   absorb the waters
                   sense your surroundings

                   behold the beauty
                   taste the air's breath
                   see the sand's warmth
                   smell the tree's age

Little One, take in the waters
                   of river sweetness
                   fill your bucket
                   until it overflows

                   caress it
                   with the warmth
                   of your chest
                   and arms

Little One, kneel before your bucket
                   present yourself
                   in humble silence

                   gaze into

Little One, the bucket is your body
                   the river is your life
                   the surroundings your creation
                   the reflection your soul

                   I am Spirit
