the healing lake

this is a response I wrote after the healing ritual at the gathering this weekend.

a pool of troubles in my hands
a pool of troubles from my heart
a pool of troubles from St Kevin’s lake

far across the seas the Spirit lifts my soul
lifts the troubles from my heart
lifts my hands from the water of the lake

and the water falls between my open palms
the troubles drop away
tumbling back into the lake

as I fall down on my knees
the tears slide gently down my cheeks
to the stoney ground beside the lake

in this far away land of healing
the Sacred wind begins to blow
and I am lifted far above the lake
