Solstice has passed and at long last
summer beams, steamy temperatures
to nurture a heart until the leaves fall
and starts the winter approaching.
Always a buffer, one never
encroaching on the other. Seasonal
sister and brother separated by their
sedate cousins spread across a dozen months.
Spring and Fall call in their time, but I’m
warmed by the summer sun as long
as it fulfills its run until winter comes!
