Solstice -Reflections on Light


Soon the black balloon
of the day
will spring a tiny leak,
the darkness dribbling out
slow at first
gaining speed
the balloon shrinking
and shriveling
until the sun
grows into a
fat ball of a day.

Whole Lotta Dark!

Dark 26 hours
a day now.
"Not possible"
you say.
Am using the
perceived light index.*

*think wind chill factor

It is way dark now.
This can only mean one thing -
the light is closer.

  1. Chill factor and perceived light index are both so real. A chuckle for "...a fat ball of a day." And A Whole lotta dark. You make words into reality bytes.
