Tomorrow, is the Summer Solstice, or Midsummer in the Northern Hemisphere; and also Winter Solstice for our Southern friends.
Yay, I wish you all parties of plenty! Blessings of soothing lake plunges, and warming bonfires! It is going to be in the upper nineties in the capital region tomorrow, and a little over 100 with the heat index. So it is going to be a scorcher!! Be sure to protect yourself and your loved ones, but also make sure to have fun!
I wrote this poem last Midsummer. I plan on pilgrimaging up to the mountains to see the rising of the sun in just under six hours!
How will you celebrate Solstice?
Will you pilgrimage? Will you go for a hike? A swim?
I plan on observing the rising and setting of the Sun, sharing in laughter with my friends, shooting some photography, reflecting & writing in my journal, bathing under a waterfall, collecting herbs and flowers, eating lots and lots of BERRIES, and meditating with Fae under the energy of the strongest Sun of the Year. 🙂
How will you reflect the Sun’s Spirit with your own heart?
Summer is a time for frolicking.
Running through the glade.
And rolling in the flowers.
Laughing, lounging, reading& bathing in grottos.
Drinking from sacred springs&
Showering under waterfalls.
Drinking tea by the light of a campfire.
Eating hedonistically from the dark fertile earth.
Summer is a time for the Soul to shine.
Flying high through the trees,
Up mountains & hills.
Of dancing in Fae groves,
Pay homage to the ancient stone guardians.
With a spirit of fire, of passion& of whimsy.
Reclaim yourself! Your Midsummer dreams!
Rejoice in the moment! This Day of longest Light.
With sun salutations, smiles& grins…
Rejuvenate and be Happy!
