It seems like June arrives each year just as I am completely spent from the demands of May. It is ushered in on the cool front of a shower. The sun is not far behind, but it is a gentle sun that brings cheer without the withering heat that will arrive later in the summer.
Refreshing drops of rain fall from the sky, restoring all that is parched and encouraging us to let go of what no longer serves useful. That which falls away leaves a beautiful reminder of all the goodness that life has offered us.
June is the mentor of months, that older woman friend who shares wisdom without judgement. Her gentle touch both soothes the ragged edges of your soul and girds your strength before sending you out into the world to face the realities presented throughout the other months.
Welcome, June. I am so glad to see you.
Such a lovely post and your photos are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much!Delete
Ahhhh - I DO see an ode to the beauties of summer from you. This is quite lovely. And I love June being seen as a wise older woman..we so often associate her with new love, ie, weddings and youth.ReplyDelete
If only new love could have the wisdom of age! Powerful combo!Delete
You are so right about May, and June is becoming one of my favorite months. It is definitely a healing month for me. Lovely words and images (as always).ReplyDelete
It is like recovery time from the chaos of May. Things are in bloom, but the heat hasn't set in. Bliss!Delete
