As I open these Windows,

Let the colours of Nature swirl through me.

 

Let the mighty Sun fill me with energy,

And like radiant glory of its rays,

Let warmth radiate outward from me.

 

Let the greens and blues reach through my soul,

And let me be one with the Earth.

Like the trees, sturdy against wind, storm & gale,

Let me stand strong.

 

Let the air cleanse me,

And ignite the fire deep within,

Fanning the flames of passion,

To hunger for what I desire.

 

As I open these windows,

Let the colours of nature swirl through me.
