Apogee

we can't get much further away
from the summer solstice
grasses tickling your shins
sun pink face, a few freckles
but it's good to be here
with winter encroaching
with your smile
bright as buttercups
your kisses delicate
as sweet pea flowers

On Winter

How low can you go?

Helios that’s enough now

Please lighten our load

n.b. Tomorrow the Winter Solstice. Not a question of belief, just a bloody relief!

Solstice

Shroud of Arctic night

Falls heaviest on this day

Sun catches her breath
