The Young Buck, on May Day/Beltane

"Now the bright morning star, day's harbinger,
Comes dancing from the east, and leads with her
The flowery May, who from her green lap throws
The yellow cowslip, and the pale primrose.
Hail, bounteous May, that doth inspire
Mirth, and youth, and warm desire;
Woods and groves are of thy dressing,
Hill and dale doth boast thy blessing,
Thus we salute thee with our early song,
And welcome thee, and wish thee long."

-  John Milton, Song on a May Morning

May Day!!

the colors today are luminous...
wild irises growing among the rocks

I love this part of an 'older' iris.  That golden 'tongue' opens fearlessly to this light.

more wildness tumbling over the rocks.

Happy Day to you all!
