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 2016!

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

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.
