Summer Solstice


Summer Solstice:

for 6 months the light of each day grew longer
inspiring the growth of all
 in her land
flowers, trees, fungi, animals and insects

as we
enter the season of summer
fresh food will be plenty
new flowers will grow
nature thrives
days begin to shorten

in her land 
it is a time to be outside
exploring
and
sharing with loved ones 
finding awe in the glory of the world

~
 
Lovely Solstice to you

  4. Can't believe we are already coming up to the longest day. The year has gone so quickly. A lovely painting and very evocative of summer and the solstice.
