Fields of Gold

Fields of Gold
“As we walk in fields of gold …” -Sting
Fields of Gold
Fields of Gold

Over the past month, vast fields of gold have stolen my heart. Especially as the sun peeks out from behind its billowing cloudy covers–when the golden sunlight illuminates golden fields, I am captivated.
By the movement.
By the stunning color and contrast, and resonant beauty.
And every time I catch my breath, I hear Sting‘s moving song lyrics weaving through my head, from his song Fields of Gold.
Fields of Gold
Sting

 

You’ll remember me when the west wind moves

Upon the fields of barley
You’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in fields of gold
So she took her love for to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold


Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley?
We’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in fields of gold
See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold


I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I’ve broken
But I swear in the days still left
We’ll walk in fields of gold
We’ll walk in fields of gold


Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You’ll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold


When we walked in fields of gold 

 

Near Prague and all across Europe in the late spring, farmers grow Colza for cooking oil.
This day, sunlight thrust itself between storm clouds, creating incredible lighting.
As summer sneaks in upon us, I hope to remember the golden fields, and to create and nurture a home of calm, and of beauty, and of lasting resonance. Somewhere where all who enter our gates may feel heartily welcomed and altogether secure, a place where we can be ourselves, a safe place where life can reflect the serenity of the plentiful fields of gold caressed by the sun.
To beautiful summer days
as we walk in fields of gold
Starting the Conversation: What do you look forward to about summer? Do you have travels, even around the bend, to discover something new?
