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.
