The Longest Day


The phenomenon of summer solstice is set to steal the show in Terra Australis as the festive season approaches. I watch as the darling mother earth jumps into the right orbit; holding the rainbow. And lining up the stars. This is the best preparation I have seen in ages. In fact, there is a gradual build-up to the longest day.

tickling the pulse of the universe
with glee
summer solstice

a thousand shades
of love in summer solstice
midsummer chic

i sit under the sumptuous wings
of summer solstice
sharing the light in silence

Behold a shift in the prevailing winds. The tropical cyclone waxes and wanes. The birds come home to play.  And the sea breeze delights.  There is a burst of energy in the realm as the sun worshippers count their blessings; feeding the restless spirit of desire.

the hand of summer solstice
in Findon
the shortest night of nights

summer solstice is born
yet, you sit like a soul possessed
holding up the sky

capturing the moment
with magical light
the eye of summer solstice

The way in which summer solstice influences human affairs is well known. It shapes our destiny; improving our knowledge of the universe; creating the symbols and rituals that facilitate our physical and psychological wellbeing.

tales from the cosmos
the scent of true love
under the light of summer solstice

you are the one
the summer solstice of wonder
painting the sky blue

i feel the presence of summer solstice
whose fragrance
purifies my humble soul
