Summer Solstice 2017

Everlast shall summer sun alight / Sustain our dance upon / Twirl waltz floor here assembled / Ancestor dust and breath and hope / Shadow forms alas forgotten / Passed along a road / In chase of grand repute / Gather ash yet swim apace / In strokes along linger trespass / Horizon expands expectant / For this child of tomorrow / Raise a glass / Beat thy breast / Jump yon fire / Sing hosanna / Hesitant twilight yet the forest calls / Shall it storm this eve in light / As the lamb recalls first springtime

Spring Equinox 2017 (with flashback poetry and portrait)

Behind shuttered eyes / Another winter fades from view / Life springs in this meadow / While swiftened mind / Conjures buzzing splendor / Daydreamer heart overflooded / Nightdreamer soul cuts its path / The pregnant restless river / Pulled down to the sea / Seeking mingle / Fresh with salt / Fir and cedar stand in stoic witness / Bud and blade / Nettle and daffodil / Revel in their fleeting
