We’Moon Holy Days: Seasonal Blessings

In each edition of the We’Moon datebook, we feature one Holy Day writer who shares with us her unique perspectives of each of the eight holy days. This year, we have the pleasure of sharing the work of Susa Silvermarie. Turned 70 in 2017 and began a new life as an immigrant to Mexico. She blogs, writes for several local publications and runs as weekly Write-to-a-prompt circle as well as a Writers Salon. She enjoys volunteering with an art program for Mexican children and truly loves her life on the shore of Lake Chapala. "Seeking local kindred spirits—come on down!"

Summer Solstice

Pachamama entreats us to
restore her clean waters,
allow the singing of the birds
to bring peace to her skies,
renew cosmic harmonies
on our sacred land.

excerpt © Marcia Starck 2012

Summer Solstice


Midsummer dreams beguile us after the longest day, entice us to expand, flourish, bring all we are meant to be out into the sun. This is the season of love made manifest.

Prehistoric monuments the world over align with sunrise at the Solstice, ushering in this time of flourishing. Plants, animals and the young of all species gambol in the light and warmth. Like flowers, our petals, too, unfurl as we dance, sing, celebrate the fullness of our creative lives, encourage others to seek theirs. We work to make our dreams of social justice and freedom for all beings manifest through thoughtful, sustained planning and action.

This is the peak of the solar year, the apex of growth, flowering and fruiting. After this beacon point, light begins imperceptibly to diminish and slowly give way to longer dark. We will need to give thought to those approaching days. But for now, joy is fiercely tiger-striped, as we taste and savor all our abundant blessings.
