Summer Solstice

As I lean toward the sun
Do I see what is and isn’t done?

Do I notice what I could not see
Deluded by the shadow of me?

The longest day…a bit of grace
To prove light can overcome the darkest space

Perhaps a lesson to be learned
Where do I lean…what do I yearn?

 

dVerse host Frank wants us to consider the summer solstice, which is today by writing couplets, one or more, in a poem.  I have only done this a couple times before. Hope its okay Frank!

  3. Love this. The line deluded by the shadow of me has so much import to me as I’ve been visiting areas of self-delusion (not necessarily on my part), but how we convince ourselves of “truths.” Love the line: to prove light can overcome the darkest space. Much meaning for today!

    I like this line: “Deluded by the shadow of me” It seems we make the shadow that leads to our own confusion.

    I love how you show that we often get in our own way and cannot see the obvious. Also like the light overcoming the darkness!

    Yes, the Summer Solstice can trigger off some thinking of yearnings forgotten in the colorful days of Spring!
