Thoughts on the mystery that surrounds Stonehenge and the summer solstice. A blending of the ancients and present- day celebrations and a little mystery of my own...

Summer Solstice
Stonehenge

 

 
 

Hanging stones commingle with the sun
faithful, even though defiled;
teach us to be mindful of dying and birth.

The sons and daughters of the neoteric
solstice chant their private incantations,
morning, noon and night they observe. 

 

Ancients attuned to the turning skies
laugh, ever so slowly at first.
It’s a long, long way from the cords of time,
to synthesize with our beating drums and pipes.

I live not too far from Stonehenge and this interpretation of the meaning of the stones and associations ranks up there with the best of them.
Thankyou

Stonehenge is an absolutely fascinating place..
I have always associated it with the Druids and Chariots of the Gods..
I am certain there is a celestial connection...;)
