Happy Winter Solstice 2016!

Pink and red sparkle

Nestled in the flaky white

A smooth curve of sweet

Winter solstice–

a hurried Sun

asks me the time

The bright winter sun

Pierces the cold clear morning

With its shortest smile

I’m christened

a dragon

by this Winter night


Happy Summer Solstice 2015!

82 degrees—

Sitting under an oak tree

Writing a letter.

His home lifted high

He hides inside the spiral

Until her soft hum.

In my moonlit yard

A symphony of crickets—

The warmth of Summer.

Sun-kissed waves of heat

Roll against my resting form.

A hero is born.
