Miracle of Light

The miracle was not in the measure
   of consecrated oil
Or the number of hours and days
  the oil burned.

The miracle was 
  letting go of measuring.

There is no measure 
 to Light or Love.
Even in darkness, 
 they are abundant.

Let go of measuring.
Be the match that kindles fire
 and the consecrated oil.
Be the miracle of Light and Love
You were created to be.

Blessed are You, Holy One, Eternal Source of Love and Light
