True summer is a garden of pink roses in full bloom.
It’s raindrops on petals.
And the twilight hour; moonlight on a shimmering silver lake.
True summer is also an Atlantic beach with pale sand and clouded sky.
It’s wild Camargue horses galloping through a marsh.
And a castle in the English countryside.
True summer skin emanates moonlight, but it’s diffused, not direct; the reflection of the moon on water.
The true summer woman is the lady of the lake.
She is deeply connected to the moon…
But she belongs near the water.
(I just read Return to Your Natural Colors by Christine Scaman, which was practically a spiritual experience. This post is my attempt to capture the essence of her true summer chapter.)
Some other things that reflect true summer are:
- The sinuous shape of swans.
- Mist on a starry night.
- Shimmering silver hair.
And I’m so grateful to have found where I belong.
