women's summer solstice satsang! #122
happy summer solstice!
we meet tonight!
summer solstice 2018
i am woken early on summer solstice morning
and gently pulled into our wild garden under a blanket of clouds
with a jar of lemoned water to nourish my body
an hour is spent watering and communing with the miraculous beings called roses
and all the other green growing beings-of-magic
a wind blows through bringing a welcomed refreshment
while the hums whiz around at lightning speed
the kitchen then becomes my dance floor as
breakfast cookies! are made, and celery juice and finally, almond matcha latte
we then sit on stools at our newly built breakfast bar
that tomas created with his hands
from a piece of recycled wood he found
and lovingly spent hours preparing
since i had apparently said how wonderful it would be
to sit at the window together and look out at the garden and the trees and the sky
and so now, shoulders touching, we sit
happily munching and sipping
delighting in the antics of our current visiting hummingbirds
and viewing (i’m almost swooning over) the miraculous beings
(how could they just be called roses? and who isn’t a miraculous being?)
i sit in awe and wonder and gratitude
contemplating blessings and miracles and magic
hearing the call of mary oliver i wander joyfully through her poetic offerings
such an abundantly luscious morning
of my favourite day of the year
and this is just the first day of summer!
how did i get so blessed?
