Summer Solstice - Welcoming Light

 The summer solstice ushers in light.  In the warmth of a hot June evening. My drum in hand, I stand facing the sun rejoicing in the light.  A pool of water shimmers as the sun dips beyond the horizon. The moon shines on my back, a reminder that light is still needed in times of darkness.

 The evening air is thick with the smell of jasmines and freshly cut grass.  Hungry sparrows chirp in unison for food, adding their own notes to the magic of twilight.  A chorus of tree frogs let out a melodious trill with each beat of the hoop drum.  Waving good-bye to the last piece of the spring sun.  

Summer's rhapsody
blooming with radiant light
music to my ears
