IRELANDS SUMMER SOLSTICE
Moving through Irelands Summer’s Solstice,
We are graced with extraordinary light,
Our Earthly position points us steadily towards our closest star.
This is a time of gratitude,
Long may this feeling last,
I can sit outside my door and breath and glow,
With loose shoulders and a happy heart.
I am absorbing and storing this feeling
As I am not so fond of the damp, cold, darkness of Irish winter
The last sliver of light in the clouded horizon taunts me to accept the extreme,
As I learn to accept the extremes of my own temperament.
Winter will bring the excuse for fires and stories,
For some, the excuse to hold on tighter to the one most loved.
I hold that image of the summer’s night time mountain
This is the reward for a long nights work.
The Solstice Sky reflects an ocean of foreverness
And I am endlessly lost and found in the depths of it.
Divinely connected to the billions
Threading the sphere of our existence,
Long may this feeling last.
Happy is my heart.
