Happy Summer Solstice!

The ancient eavesdropper


solstice —
the sun a
trick candle —
to snuff out.

    Especially if you are here in Fairbanks, Alaska. The sun is a votive candle that burns 24 hours each day. Love your poem, Tyler.

    Nicely done! Not surprisingly, I, too, have had one ready for this day, as have many others I suppose. Big enough subject for a couple of puny mortals like us! 🙂

    From one perspective, an all seeing eye, but from another, an all knowing wink. Perhaps just a gas bubble in need of a maternal pat and rub, or the single conduit through which we are umbilically connected to the eternal universe.
