Solstice Eve

Solstice Eve

On the longest
day of the year,
I want to choose
the shortest path
to joy—the one
with no distance,
no time. The one 
we can know
as close as our skin
& in any season. 

I want to go to sleep
& come awake
to this lengthy day, 
to sun—to all 
that’s possible
in hours of light. 

But may I remind
myself of all I can also 
do when darkness 
begins again—when 
joy will dress in shadow
but still glow,

- from the world
in opposite zone ...
loving shadow
appreciating every shining moment ...
