Lifter of the Light, Burnisher of the Sky.
Gifts of love to earth are bringing,
Summer's shimmer, dew's delight.
Dancing be the heart within us,
Open be our soul to bliss,
Courage vanquish every shadow,
Greet midsummer with a kiss.
Caitlin Matthews, Celtic Devotional
The Solstice seems to arrive early here in the Sierras this year, with rivers still very high and multi-feet of snow awaiting melt from summer's sun at the highest passes and peaks. My zinnias are happy that hotter days have arrived here in the foothills. Blessings of the Summer Solstice to all my dear friends!
