Honoring Ireland and the wonderful Irish poet and Philosopher John O’Donohue on St. Patrick”s Day

Honoring Ireland and the wonderful Irish poet and Philosopher John O’Donohue on St. Patrick”s Day

In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, we would like to share some beautiful images of Ireland and one of the poems by John O’Donohue “Beannacht,” which is the Gaelic word for blessing. If you have a little more time, enjoy the fantastic interview of John O’Donohue by Krista Tippett -“The Inner Landscape of Beauty” on her show “On Being. http://www.onbeing.org/programs/john-odonohue-the-inner-landscape-of-beauty/

“Beannacht” John O’Donohue

On the day when
The weight deadens
On your shoulders
And you stumble,
May the clay dance
To balance you.

And when your eyes
Freeze behind
The gray window
And the ghost of loss
Gets in to you,
May a flock of colors,
Indigo, red, green,
And azure blue,
Come to awaken in you
A meadow of delight.

When the canvas frays
In the curragh of thought
And a stain of ocean
Blackens beneath you,
May there come across the waters
A path of yellow moonlight
To bring you safely home.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
May the clarity of light be yours,
May the fluency of the ocean be yours,
May the protection of the ancestors be yours.

And so may a slow
Wind work these words
Of love around you,
An invisible cloak
To mind your life.
