Happy Summer Solstice 2016!

Published June 20, 2016 by AllThingsShort

Blaze against the night

The crackly shell slides down

Melted cream revealed


the sleeping trees

outside my window;

Summer’s first cricket


Smoky hickory

Curling through the summer night

sneaking through windows


Summer solstice–

my leisurely pace

matches the Sun’s
