Our Golden Companion

June 20, 2016 garden 008


Celebrate the sun,

The source of all heat, light and life

on Earth;

Our Golden Companion

through all the days of our lives;

The fiery center of our solar system;

Sol Invictus.

Apollo’s bright chariot;

Atum-Ra in his bark, traversing the sky,

Vanquishing Apopis so the sun might rise again.

Lord Shamash at the gates of the East,

Belenos, whose fires are lit to celebrate

his healing powers,

Earth grows green and verdant at your touch,

But burns and withers if you come too close.

Solstice, midsummer; longest day;

The tipping point.


June 20, 2016 garden 005


With summer’s sun now in retreat;

Cooling darkness returns

to quench the heat.

“Limitless undying love

which shines around me

like a million suns

it calls me on and on across the universe.”

John Lennon

“We all shine on…

like the moon and the stars and the sun…

we all shine on…come on and on and on…”
