Joyce's Solstice Poem!

It is a day for poetry.

Here is Joyce's offering to the bonfires flaming this Solstice day and night.

A winter solstice poem-

The longest night of the year,
without the expected darkness.
Instead a cloudy sky,
backlit by the moon,
the distant roar of thunder,
a few flashes of lightening
then the rain.

Life is a poem,
beautiful, rich,
waiting to be noticed,

Oh to be a part of these
rhythms and cycles
of seasons and life,
connecting to them,
neighborhood, close people,
the basic structures
of nature and life.

Ignored, as I pursued
an education, a career, the hustle
bustle of responsibilities.
Shared for a time
with young children,
noticing with them
the natural elements of place and time

Now I am so able to enjoy
the largeness
and the small details
of this life.

Ah, breathe change, rhythm, detail, life.
