December!




A Calendar Of Sonnets – December

The lakes of ice gleam bluer than the lakes
Of water ‘neath the summer sunshine gleamed:
Far fairer than when placidly it streamed,
The brook its frozen architecture makes,
And under bridges white its swift way takes.
Snow comes and goes as messenger who dreamed
Might linger on the road; or one who deemed
His message hostile gently for their sakes
Who listened might reveal it by degrees.
We gird against the cold of winter wind
Our loins now with mighty bands of sleep,
In longest, darkest nights take rest and ease,
And every shortening day, as shadows creep
O’er the brief noontide, fresh surprises find.

Happy July everyone 🌸🦋



Tall Nettles

TALL nettles cover up, as they have done 
These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough 
Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: 
Only the elm butt tops the nettles now. 

This corner of the farmyard I like most: 
As well as any bloom upon a flower 
I like the dust on the nettles, never lost 
Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.

Today is the first of February,




 

“Today is the first of February,
snowy, brilliant, but dripping with the sound of spring wherever the sun lies warm,
and calling with the heart of spring yonder where the crows are assembling.”

“Wisteria woke me this morning,
And there was all June in the garden;
I felt them, early, warning
Lest I miss any part of the day.

Straight I walked to the trellis vine.
Wisteria touched a lifted nostril:
Feelings of beauty diffused, to entwine
My spirit with June’s own aura.”
– Ann McGough, Summons (http://www.gardendigest.com/monjun.htm)
Welcome to June! Welcome to boisterous sunny days in the Northern Hemisphere! Just like youthful spring gives way to summer in June, so does the year finally lose its youthfulness; after June you get the feeling that the year is homeward bound! June is therefore a time for mid-term stocktaking: a time to be thankful for small mercies and to rev up efforts to attain yearly resolutions and dreams!
Most importantly, June is a month of stupendous spiritual energy! Coming immediately after the Outpouring of Power, the whole of Creation shines with new splendor and the elements around us come alive! This is what gives the month the special “June’s own aura” mentioned by Ann McGough!
The new wave of invigorating Power is there for all of us to bathe and bask in, and my prayer is that they touch us with blessings!
Happy birthdays to our June babies, you came in a rush of spiritual power and sunshine! An unknown author once captured your endowments:
“Who comes with summer to this earth,
And owes to June her hour of birth,
With ring of agate on her hand
Can health, wealth, and long life command.”
