Draw a circle around yourself, they say

Trace your finger in the air and say a prayer

And this is your sanctuary

Your protected place

Join your body to your soul

In supplication to the almighty

Let Earth be part of your litany

And draw your circle

On sacred ground

Encompassing all you hold dear

In the fading light

Of an increasingly troubled world

Draw your caim, and know

That you and yours are held in the hand

Of a loving and merciful Father.

Caim – sanctuary, an invisible circle of protection, drawn around the body with the hand, to remind one of being safe and loved, even in the darkest times.
