Yakut Prayer

A wonderful poem from the Poetry Chaikhana --

Yakut Prayer

By Yakut (Anonymous)
(19th Century)

My words are tied in one
With the great mountains,
With the great rocks,
With the great trees,
In one with my body
And my heart.
Do you all help me
With supernatural power,
And you, Day,
And you, Night,
All of you see me
One with the world!

-- from The Essential Mystics: Selections from the World's Great Wisdom Traditions, Edited by Andrew Harvey
