Happy Solstice!

  1. Somebody needs to make coffee soon or I might evaporate.

  2. Family, community, peace

    Magic mountain stream

    A three year old’s eyes gleam

    Horse and moose will meet

    A wholly unknown feat

    Grandson watches Grampy

    Softwoods in the morning

    Hardwoods at night

    Starry skies over campfire light

    A day of fresh air give you might

    Red lasers poke thru the smoke

    So up comes the camp joke

    So I signal my NSA bloke

    the light stretched and tangy, up on its horse

    and riding through the ripening meadows,

    buzzing the leaves and the

    birds who’ve been at it for hours.

    Light that in its excess has become something else.

    The way Cranberry Falls is so frothed with runoff

    it doesn’t look like water anymore. The way you look

    from a hill’s highest point, your head full of chlorophyll,

    heart shucking winter like a clayload of guilt,

    like pollen with its open fire policy

    compensating loss. You exceed yourself,

    tanked on the light and the birds

    who’ve been singing forever.


    H/t to Hecate.

    We have a long day of rain in the Seattle area. It was good, though, because we needed it.

    We celebrate the summer solstice as a day of thanksgiving…
