A Blessing for Female Sexuality, by Alexandria Franks

May the easy grace of the body
delight in the sight of skin in the mirror. 
Light illuminating the folds and curves
of the belly and thighs. 
May breasts hold the weight of shape. 
Of pleasure a thousand times over. 

May only the thoughts you have of your body be gentle, as a small wave breaking on sand; 

For the mind and soul and spirit all depend on this—

For the generations of women to come depend on this: 

The love you will cultivate for the gifts of your female body.
