We are telling ourselves a story of inevitable destruction,
that the environment is doomed,
but the seeds of a new way of life are sprouting
beneath the cracks, beneath the concrete,
and the rivers are rising,
the Earth is protesting,
the winds of change are blowing.
The spirits of place are calling
for a new story, for a new paradigm.
A story of hope, a story of renewal.
Ancient Goddess of Earth,
hear our desire for change,
forgive us for wounding you,
over and over.
We begin today to tell a new story, a story of hope, a story of renewal.
The wheel turns, the fire burns, the winds of change are blowing.
The spirits of place are calling, the seeds of change are growing.
We dare to dream, we dare to hope, we dare to change.
