like the milkweed and the foxglove of the prairie
assent fresh each morning to being scattered
in the dark, moist soil of God.
like the purple prairie clover and the rattlesnake master
of the prairie sow and be sown
in the God
who loves this world beyond measure and without regret.
Bless you. You are holy ground.
This blessing is given to the Ecumenical Center for Clergy Spiritual Renewal (ECCSR) pastors after their first immersion from the people and place of Holy Wisdom Monastery.
