Happy Summer Solstice.
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.
