Drifting in and out
of the winds there is a shift between
where one can rest within the bright sun
the shadows growing long the crisp air
hanging on even with the morning sun
frost beginning to stay awhile the sun longing to stay up all night (more…)
I am struck by the softness within the vast
expanse of my thoughts ever changing knots
exposed with the tidal shift of summer days
and endless waves of expected bliss yet I can see
there is more I need to feel and float upon
to give into and celebrate the siege (more…)
Feeling the pull
to stand out away from the background
routine fading my dreams blossoming
gaining flourishing unwavering still dainty and new
but oh so beautiful
Although summer’s pace is slow in thought it moves at a rapid trot, at least for me. In giving an effort to make the most of each of these longer days I am noticing so many moments of moving away from should and must dos into savoring the pocket of a moment for an extra long time. Sitting in, taking in, deeply moving through, it is opening my heart to the life I have always wanted to live and that is incredible. So incredible.
Today marks the first day of summer vacation. My boys are thrilled, I am a bit overwhelmed with the thought of endless summer days and their wild energy. At the moment the need to contain their wildness feels unnecessary. So I hope to have this image in my mind most of the summer, the sounds of the sweet rustling leaves, the soft endless hues of green, the branches reaching and winding, holding and calming me.
I am going to honor this time by posting less frequently. I am looking forward to sinking into the direction this summer has in store for us and all the natural beauty from within and around us we will uncover. I hope the same for my readers too. Happy Solstice, happy summer, enjoy!
