Prayer of Leaves

Prayer of Leaves

Trees of Earth
let bud your leaves
let them open wide
let them gently fall
in annual cycle.

Let fallen leaves make soft bed for Jesus at his birth
and may leafy humus make renewal of our humanity.

Forgive us our inhumanity and
may your dark branches break forth into bud and leaf to Creation's praise
again, and
again, and
forever. Amen.
