Ways to Look at the Summer Solstice

Solstice

Ian Hennes (5 years ago) — “This is a 6 month pinhole photo taken from solstice to solstice, in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. We are one of the sunniest cities in Canada, and this shows it nicely.

 

Straight on and go blind; or stare
at your shadow, imagine what’s behind.

6:07 this morning, I live in Eastern
time zone; no sun watched a lesser tern.

Clouds all day, and cooler than the four
preceding days; now it’s summer – huh.

Posted to d’Verse Poets Pub, where Frank Hubeny is hosting Meeting the Bar.  Tonight we are asked to write couplets (optionally in response to the Summer Solstice).
