An Invocation for Cleansing

Wash away the world’s dirt,
the sin, the time, the hurt,
those horrible questions
that no one could answer,
and no one could avert.

Wash away the anger.
Wash away the pain.
I forgave us for that.
Time has come and gone
and no one could explain.

Wash away the stain,
the sick, the profane.
Wash away everything
that holds us back.
Let only love remain.

I want to feel clean again.
I’ve almost gone insane –
since my soul ran pure
like a crystal creek up high
in the cold mountains.
