Solstice Song

The clouds lumber in and out

blocking the sun as if in doubt

of whether summer solstice should be bright

or cloudy, a reminder we’ll be losing light.

The birdsong surrounds me now;

a cardinal perches on a bough

the tweets remind me to be present

appreciate the moments before dark cold’s descent.

  1. Good observation. A rainy solstice may be appropriate reminding us that days will be getting shorter. Birds remind me to be present as well. Their sounds or flights make me stop thinking and pay attention to them and then I realize that is what I should be paying attention to.
