Blessing for the Body in the Night

Blessing for the Body in the Night                                                                     

by Melissa ra Karit


Night bless your feet

May they carry you far for long walks in the dark

Night bless your legs

May they dance the night through

Night bless your hips and what's cradled between them

May the dance of your pleasure be long, wet, deep, high, and full

Night bless your belly

May the empty ache that sometimes finds you in the middle of the night

teach you how to hold space

Night bless your chest and your beating heart

May you be alive to the electric pulse of the night

Night bless your throat

May you rest with the silence and scream with the music

Night bless your eyes

May their heaviness be eased

Night bless your crown

May the flash of your thoughts bring you great inspiration

Night bless your body

Awake in the night


Be joyful!
