Summer Solstice 2022 – A Haibun

Summer Solstice 2022

Tomorrow, June 21st, is the summer solstice here in the USA and the longest day.  As summer is my favorite time of year I am always thrilled to have extra daylight time.

I will not be taking part in any group celebrations but I will be thankful and appreciating nature.  Being outside is calming for me.  I feel kissed by the sun, refreshed by the rain and nourished by the earth’s gifts.

I respect both its might and its anger

Majestic sunrise
Shining your light on the world
Warming our spirits

      Thanks Gillena. Here in Florida we are now in our rainy season but it is very hot. Plenty of sun still and the rain makes everything beautiful, and of course the rainbows 🌈
      Warm wishes, Christine
