In faith, together, we light this small scrap of light, Symbol of Grandfather Sun's enormous power, Whose energy burns so brightly In these days of deep Summer, Catapulting the leaves and vines,
vegetables, flowers and fruits
To astonishing size, lengths and heights, Spilling over the tops of cages, walls and trellises.
Delighting and nourishing all beings.
We bask in the warmth and the heat of these days, With lightened hearts and quickened senses, In gratitude and in faith.
