SUMMER SOLSTICE


Happy Summer Solstice.

POPPIES AT MERTHA'S CABIN

The longest Day of light and the shortest night.

The cycle, the pattern of information that this invites.

The way the days expand with sunlight  and the night

gives way to  this increase of light with little sleep

in the dance with the moon and stars.

 

There is a little lament in the tomorrow, when

the days begin to shortening a little at a time.

And moon and sun seek their equality in this

sky that lays itself over my world over my time.

And for today, this first day of summer

with it’s call to blooms and warm social nights

finds us here in this hemisphere of a long

long day and night that

sleeps for just a little while.
