New Moon Song for June.

The first elderflower of summer in bloom by the kitchen garden gate.

The days are lengthening and the solstice is almost upon us. The sun has been kind to us this season and the house is slowly disappearing into the lushness of the garden: it is time to lie down and look up; let the trees be a circle; let long grasses fringe the world and watch the dragonflies stitch one blue day into another. Naiad into metamorphosis into ecdysis into adulthood. The world turns, the dragonflies hatch and the moon waxes. Let this New Moon start the cycles anew.

The perfect Solstice New Moon song.

A wild Rosa Rugosa doing her thing.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”  – Anaïs Nin (The Diaries)

The Elder - a tree of the dark moon, but a flower of the Solstice.
