Solstice Walk

Summer Solstice

Then followed that beautiful season…Summer.

Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Slipping out of work day clothes

into shorts, sleeveless and sneakers

The stroll through the lush streets commences

The sun’s heat sinking into my exposed skin

Surrounded by summer sounds

Singing of tots on the swings

Smells of freshly sown grass

Visions of deep blue contrast with endless glaze of green

Slowly exhaustion gives way to serenity

I ascend towards the sounds of the clock tower bell

serenading us with its medley of silvery songs

I am in the midst of stones both ancient and unseasoned

The souls gather their dust in the soil

Lives well-lived

Basking beneath a daytime star

    1. Thank you for stopping by and liking my post! I just peeked at yours last night before fatigue set in so I promise to resume my exploration very soon!

      And thank you for your compliment. It was a lovely walk at the end of a very long work week.

        It was my pleasure. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future as well.
        Have a fantastic day 😉
