Ode for the awakening Kundalini

'It is time for the invocation:

Kali, be with us.

Violence, destruction, receive our homage.

Help us to bring darkness into light,

To lift out the pain, the anger,

Where it can be seen for what it is -

The Balance-wheel for our vulnerable, aching love.

Put the wild hunger where it belongs,

Within the act of creation,

Crude power that forges a balance

Between hate and love.

Help us to be the always hopeful

Gardeners of the spirit

Who know that without darkness

Nothing comes to birth

As without light

Nothing flowers.

Bear the roots in mind,

You, the dark one, Kali,
