Midsummer Gold

Golden Light

arise

to greet the dawning sun

*

gathering armfuls of pure

golden light

to crown the summer king

*

the Lord of the Hunt

proud and virile

mighty sunbeams amidst oak leaves

*

watch as he takes his place

beside the queen

*

the Lady of the Meadows

bedecked in flowers

her belly swelling with future’s hope

*

reconnect

with nature’s turning wheel as you

light the flame

of creative passions

*

arise

as the long day

begins

Path in golden light

For the first time since moving into my new house, I went out for a dawn walk this morning. It was the summer solstice – how could I not?! Though it wasn’t particularly pleasant to drag myself out of bed at 4am, in the end I was very glad I did as it was a beautiful morning. I was going to save the pictures I took for a later date and simply post my usual Wordless Wednesday today,  but as I also wrote the poem whilst I was out and about so I thought I may as well share them all with you now.

Here are a few more pictures:

I hope you like them.

Happy Solstice!

    1. Thank you, Jeanne. 🙂 It was a beautiful morning. The building in the picture is actually Lincoln cathedral – a very impressive building. There is a castle next to it, but it seems tiny in comparison.

    1. It’s really not pleasant getting up at that time, but I’m always happy when I manage to do so. The light at dawn is always beautiful. I’m glad you liked that line – I was determined to include it in the poem. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Laurie. I’m glad you like them. 🙂 The building in the picture is actually a cathedral. There’s a castle next to it, but it seems quite small in comparison! It’s the cathedral that dominates the Lincoln skyline.
