Winter Solstice by Michele Slatter

(A glance at solstice from an upside down perspective)


The day ages quickly
goes grey
needs lights: street lights, headlights
early night, longest sleep
dreams of youth
grey gives way to gold again, cold to heat.
No dream!


However I still think of summer solstice in June:
June Solstice: North


Day’s slow, slow, slowest fade
pale lawns, soft airs, fireflies, laughter
dark days wait.
