Sunset Sunrise & Summer Solstice

sun falls
towards the horizon
my energy falls to softness
my own horizon

light dawning
or setting
reveals the soul
essence
of life


Wishing one and all a wonderful Summer Soltice,
may each summer day bring gifts that uplift your spirit and brighten your day!

  1. The first looks like a volcano erupting with so much smoke. Such a beautiful sight but deadly if it is a real volcano.

  9. Thank you for your beautiful wishes Tammie. The cloud formation is amazing.

    Unfortunately, summer is nothing more than a dream here. Grey in grey and temperatures in the mid 50s. June?! ;-)

    Have a wonderful Sunday (when you wake up!)
