Spring/Summer Fashion

Spring/Summer Fashion
By Steve Millard

The Gardener LIX: O Woman by Rabindranath Tagore

O woman, you are not merely the
handiwork of God, but also of men;
these are ever endowing you with
beauty from their hearts.
Poets are weaving for you a web
with threads of golden imagery;
painters are giving your form ever
new immortality.
The sea gives its pearls, the mines
their gold, the summer gardens their
flowers to deck you, to cover you, to
make you more precious.
The desire of men's hearts has shed
its glory over your youth.
You are one half woman and one
half dream


Spring/Summer Fashion is about the

Confident Woman who is
secure in her womanhood.
A woman who knows her value.
Her value as an individual.
Her value in the household.
As mother, daughter, wife, or sister.
Her value in community.
It isn’t about her conceit,
Knowing how good she looks.
It is about confidence…
Her beauty comes from
Artists, both of word and form,
Have tried to capture
That beauty.
The beauty of ,Woman.
Usually in the midst of spring and summer.
The time of rebirth.
When nature springs forth
With new life.
Flowers bud,
Trees blossom,
Lady Gaia springs forth
An orchestrated perfomance
In the beauty of Life.
The woman of confidence
May celebrate this wonderful
Time in her Spring/Summer fashion.
In the ways, of Aphrodite.

Homeric Hymn 6 to Aphrodite (trans. Evelyn-White) (Greek epic C7th to 4th B.C.) :
"[Aphrodite at her birth was carried by the winds to Kypros] and there the gold-filleted Horai (Seasons) welcomed her joyously. They clothed her with heavenly garments: on her head they put a fine, well-wrought crown of gold, and in her pierced ears they hung ornaments of orichalc and precious gold, and adorned her with golden necklaces over her soft neck and snow-white breasts, jewels which the gold-filleted Horai wear themselves."

So may all women
Celebrate this time of year
By donning her spring/summer fashion
Be it pastels, prints of floral,
Or fabrics
That shows
Her femininity
Be it a slit.
Single shoulder,
Or plunging neckline.
Celebrate this time of year
As nature brings forth
Its beauty.
