Summer Solstice

For the longest day
I woke with the sunrise
Listening to the morning chorus
Warm their voices
The heat has already begun
Yet I stretch my arms
As though an eagle in flight
Absorbing the rays of the
Steamy morning sun
This day feels perfect
Even before it begins
A perfect solstice morning
To remind me of the summer fires
And how much
I want to live.

May your longest day for this solar return be blessed with all the things which make you feel most alive.
