• Solstice •

Like the moon tonight,

I am full of light.

Like the stars tonight,

I am falling,

but still screaming bright.

Like the sky tonight,

I grow darker sooner,

and may stay that way longer,

but when my light returns,

it will burn back stronger.

The solstice tonight

carries magic that

the ancients once did see.

But her magic persists now

and endures in me.
