Ignite the Flame

Form: Mathnawi

To pray is to open my soul to desire,
And ignite the flame of my spiritual fire.
It is the heart’s whisper carried on the breeze,
It is the rustling leaves that jostle in trees,
While in the silence I rest here on my knees.
To pray is to open my soul to desire,
And ignite the flame of my spiritual fire.
The solitary chime of the altar bell
Release my mind so I can hear the gods tell
The way my journey through life will lead me well.
To pray is to open my soul to desire,
And ignite the flame of my spiritual fire.
As I watch the dancing of the candle flame,
I see it’s in Nature that the gods proclaim
In Earth’s bounty there can be no living shame.
To pray is to open my soul to desire,
And ignite the flame of my spiritual fire.
If I open my eyes and take time to see
The beauty of the gods is all around me
In my prayer I am able to set myself free.
To pray is to open my soul to desire,
And ignite the flame of my spiritual fire
