Solstice










Today is the longest 
day of the year,
how, exactly,
did we get here?
Early morning 
light seeps through
my blind. I'm wishing
I could travel in kind,
find out just where 
you've gone. The day
you left, so short,
so dark, the cold 
winter morning
left its mark.
But today will be long,
light pouring in
when I get home.
The earth will finally turn
itself over, even if you
are still
undercover.
