here we are in our short days with winds that rattle and roar
with cold that nips and slices
tucked into nights long and dream filled.
the Sun has reached the endpoint and stops,
pauses for a breath, a rest,
a moment in time…
and then saunters back the other way.
I am stopped.
I am paused,
and I am having a rest,
taking a moment to reflect on the year past
Rain has been visiting
after such a long dry spell.
Sun and Rain play chasing and hide and seek with clouds and blue sky.
it is mercurial weather and you never know from one glance out the window to the next what it will be like.
as soon as you take your brolly Sun will wash over you and you put your brolly down take off a layer and before your chicks are hatched dark clouds zoom in and rain sprinkles or pours and you wonder where that brolly went to.
Sun enters the equation again in great swards of blue and a drizzle and on and on from one to other with endless variations on this theme.
the other visitor is Rainbow
with frequent and sturdy sightings,
it appears vague and muted soft like marshmallow and sometimes shy showing only a smidgeon of itself,
other times it appears vivid and alert, bold and dressed for a carnival arching with grace over valleys and hills
suggesting …. hinting…. teasing ….
at that pot of gold.
what is a Rainbow?
it is magic
it is elegant alluring and heavenly
a bridge between the realms,
it tugs at our heart strings
and whispers to our soul.
the Rainbow holds the promise of oneness
of coming together
without fear or judgement.
it is an inspiration,
for how we can live our lives,
and above all it reflects harmony.
may this solstice bring you all a moment of reflection
a rainbow of transcendence
and your very own pot of gold.
Blessings from the forest of the faerie embassy
