Let us change our mind for good to unfold
In tune with the turning of ashes to gold.
May our holy fire burn to be pure
So the energy of stardust will endure.
Let silver smoke cast out doubt and fear
So in mystical platinum mist we hear
Inner silence slowly distilling deep insight
Of colors clearly becoming the white of pure light.
We see the many colored facets shine
In the diamonds transformed by time
And the treasured work of humankind
In the polished gem of a brilliant mind
Like precious rubies, emeralds and sapphires
In the soft burning sigh of the alchemical fire.
