Summer Solstice.

From Preseli mountains in Wales
to grace Salisbury plain a cathedral
of stones pre-date the pyramids.

A circle aligned with the sun
as it passes from sunrise to sunset
links life, birth to beyond death.

Quietly, sitting on sacred earth
folk wait to see the dawn.
Like birds, their voices rise

in reverence to sing a druid song
full throated, greeting sun's rays
to celebrate the longest day.

Here our world thins to connect
with the world of departed spirits,
those of ancestors, gone before.

Moving through these monuments,
is a passage of respect for the ancients
whose shoulders bore the future of man.
