Strawberry and Rose Full Moon Summer Solstice, 2016

5 Comments

Cascading cluster of just-opening Ocean Spray blossoms.

Cascading cluster of just-opening Ocean Spray blossoms.

Throughout the day,
June’s full moon gathers energy
spawned in cascading clusters
of ivory ocean spray
and other wild land blossoms,
softly-fanned butterfly wings
and ripening strawberries.

Wild woodland strawberry.

Wild woodland strawberry.

Throughout the night,
the silvery dandelion seed heads
speak in tongues ancient,
of medicines for body, mind and soul,
but have you seen them
dance and whirl about
when the moon turns full?

Silvery dandelion seed head.

Silvery dandelion seed heads casting their seeds into the summer breezes this Solstice night.

Throughout the month,
solar and lunar forces
weave undulating dances
as earth’s waters
caress and withdraw
creating sensual  rhythms
in color, fragrance
and thorn.

Summer rose.

Summer rose.

 Until we journey together next time,  may your summer be enriching and peaceful.
