Please join in ritual to hold space for healing the oil spill in the Gulf

Today I invite you to offer a line or short verse of poetry, perhaps the most ancient way of conveying images, as a ritual offering for healing in our world. Please post your offering in the form of a line or verse in this space that we may accumulate a powerful concentrated sphere of intention - a prayer wall of poetry, if you will. Feel free to add one or several each day if you feel called to do so.

As Jung says, "Whoever speaks in primordial images speaks with a thousand voices. . . ." ("On the Relation of Analytical Psychology to Poetry" [_CW_ 15: 129]) and "In each of these images there is a little piece of human psychology and human fate, a remnant of the joys and sorrows that have been repeated countless times in our ancestral history. . . ." ("On the Relation of Analytical Psychology to Poetry" [_CW_ 15: 127])
