For the Summer Solstice

The winds blow, rains come.
Bare feet touch the Earth.
Green leaves unfurl, flowers bloom,
Fruits ripen, roots sink deep.

Seas, rivers, fields and forests
Teem, overflow with abundant life:
Darting, leaping, running, soaring high.

On the longest of days,
At midsummer, raise our voices,
Sing loudly: It is well!


A blessed Solstice to all! Watch this space for a companion poem, in about six months’ time. 😉
