Tilting Towards the Sun



summer solstice
day of  abundant light
tilting my head  towards the sun
fires of passion  burn in my soul
warming my heart new awareness
my roots grow deep, reaching for you
dreams grow in a field of yellow gold
darkness fades, opening blue skies
swaying in a breeze I think of you 
smiling brightly...

  2. Beautiful words and photo, Truedessa! I was just in Iceland where a sunny evening brought everyone out. They all made me think of sunflowers because their faces were turned to the sun. They were soaking it in! I love the summer solstice, although I hate to think of the days getting shorter again. In the four nights we were in Reykjavik it never got dark, although the sun did slip below the horizon. What a strange and wonderful experience.

    1. Hi Brian,

      Have you ever seen a field of these? I have it and it is just an amazing sight it made me want to go stand among them facing the sun.

  4. Spring and a fling is soon over indeed, as summer takes seed and a sway comes to play in more light of day. A thought that brings a smile can sure stretch a mile

  11. True True How I love that I could read this poem as a sunflower to the sun and as a person to the sunflower and then put both together and feel the images transport me. Very fine!

  12. I like the feelings in your poem, Truedessa. The warmth of the sun, the length of days and how a firmly rooted soul can live in the moment, think of the loved one and smile.
