Solstice Shining

Always June, you have the power to entice the tiny diamond hidden deep within my core

Exerting pressure with a breeze or the kiss of rain on my cheek

Slowly June, you cajole memory upon emotion upon young woman’s dreams to shine

Polishing away the rough surfaces of subsequent years, disappoints and fears

Beautiful June, faceting my hopes and dreams with brilliance and clarity

Restoring once again clarity to my heart and brilliance to my soul

Litha
Vervain my crown
The veil becomes thinner
The Holly King resumes his throne
Rejoice!

Litha Approaches ~ Cinquain I

Solstice
Evening descends
Dusky shadows lengthen
Summer’s longest day pales into
Twilight
