Summer Solstice

by Rhiannon Cotter

Summer Solstice, the longest day, represents a turning point from Spring to Summer during which the Sun God directs the ripening and blossoming of the grain and fruit. Here in the heat of the Summer, the crops are transformed as are our actions, thoughts and plans. All things are tempered by the heat of the Sun. Blossoming and ripening of our works are manifested, or they shrivel and die in the heat. All the while, sexual energy is growing. The Sun God impregnates the Earth Goddess in a sweet "petit mort"---as the cup is to the Goddess, so too is the athame to the God.

Midsummer

by JT

Midsummer ---

Longest day

Shortest night

Longest light

Shortest dark

The world within

Echoes the world without

Lush foliage, leaves unfurled

Soft springy grass dotted with

Brightly colored flowers peeping through

The earth is green and bright

With warm sunny days

Clear velvety blue skies

Gentle cool breezes

Nature in glory

Our hopes blossom

Creativity flowers

With the season

The seeds of the fruit

Our desires will bear

Can be seen

On the stems

Of our dreams

Summer Invocation

by Trish Telesco

Fireflies and summer sun

in circles round

we become as one.

Singing songs at magick's hour

we bring the winds

and timeless powers.

Turning inward, hand in hand

we dance the hearth

to heal the land.

Standing silent, beneath the sky

we catch the fire

from out God's eye.

Swaying breathless, beside the sea

we call the Goddess

so mote it be!

(This can be used as a chant, part of a spiral dance, or to invoke quarters.)

Summer

by Marian Lore Singer

Standing midst the Circle

I look at faces ---

all searching for that special spark

that sense of connection

which spans all words

and worlds.

We come together

to know the same magic

that moved the great stones

birthed the dragons

and touched even the stars

with its mighty song.

Together,

to sense the power

rising within us

like the glory of a summer sun

until we too sing

its timeless ballad.

Together,

until our souls dance hand in hand

with the Lady of Light

and Lord of the Fires

Rejoicing.

(The above "Summer" poem is quoted directly from Llewellyn's 1994 Magical Almanac, page 169, Llewellyn Worldwide Publications, 1993.)
