linden tree, summer solstice

 

Linden-1

Summer Solstice

How can I fill my heart
with the scent of the full bloom linden tree,
this first elixir of summer?

Where does medicine go
after it finishes its work?

Even with the sun gone,
I keep drawing linden-flower
into the spaces of my body,

and I breathe out to you
its delicate sweetness
that your heart, too, may brighten.
