Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice resized

Enter summer

in ladies slippers

to walk through clover;

dressed in being

with tortoiseshell adornment

and sighing

all the fashion –

Scarlet Pimpernel Page 30its blush lasting

only as long as the day.

Happy Solstice
Summer or Winter!
Wherever you are,
have a magical day!

  1. Diane,

    Your art and poetry always touch the inner core and Summer Solstice does that with ease. Absolutely gorgeous! The bumble bee is the highlight for me. I had to look twice to make sure it was not a living being landed on my screen. The wings are a bit of heaven, as is your poem and all your art work.
    So very much enjoyed!



  2. Hi Diane,

    that is beautiful again 🙂 Those purple flowers are called schapenbloemen where I live, (sheepflowers) there are a lot growing here now.

    Let’s hope it will be a good Summer for all ❤


  3. Diane, this is simply beautiful. The elegance of words melded with these paintings which I have enlarged to see them better. The bee and butterfly have both taken my breath away. It all has!!

    Lots of love to you and happy midsummer too! ❤ xxxx
