Such the iridescent palette of rainbow-colored droplets
Blending into the vast and seamless body of the ocean,
May Your Spirit merge into mine
No longer for them to be told apart.
Such the synchronized surf of the relentless waves
Soothing my soul and pecking my cheeks with salty kisses,
May Your Heart beat in unison with mine
In a spellbinding drumming ceremony.
Such the subdued ceiling light diffused by golden sun rays
Piercing through the misty cloud cover
To bathe the underworld in its reassuring glow,
May Your Luminescence power my lantern
Keeping at bay all treacherous shadows.
Such the pacifying berceuse hummed by a sleepy mother
Rocking her little one into a tranquil slumber,
May Your whispers in the stillness
Lull me into a blissful trancelike state.
