The Longest Day of The Year - Summer Solstice 2010

Magnificent and all aglow, the heavens are on fire
with colour and celebration on this the longest day of the year.

Golden, I am golden,
a fiery sun burning with a never ending flame.

Red hot centre combusting,
radiating outward,
wave after wave fueled by a magnificient wind,
whirling, blowing life into the feeding flames.
I am alight, radiant, glorious.

Raging heat, the nucleus of creation,
throw me down into your molten heart,
transform me in your crucible.

Forged in the white heat to arise
a phoenix from your flame.

Base to precious,
lead to gold,
transmutation,
alchemy.

Great pictures! I especially love the heart prism in front of the sky. Oh, and now the days are getting shorter again :(

Hi Tamara, yes, I don't like to feel that the days are getting shorter. ;-( Still we've got a while yet! Thanks for popping in.

Lovely photos and poem Susannah. They remind me of how much I miss England sometimes. (A great deal some days).
