On the high wire of these times
Changing Women dances
surefooted and exuberant.
O Goddess of Radical Alchemy!
Teach us the arts
of bending with the sway,
Then countering the flow,
Of bending the extremes,
Daring to hold the Middle Way.
Grant us, Kwan Yin,
Your poise in the eye of the storm.
Ground us in your Harmony.
Challenge us with immeasurable reach of your Love.
Pele, Divine Artisan, temper us in your Great Fire of reconciliation
Where opposites bursts into new gold,
And the annealed heart can mend.
