Night Falls on Solstice by Janine M. Donoho

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA singular event—

Our sun hovers over lush Tropics.

The coy North Pole

Tips away.

Luminated hours shrink to an octet in

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOur boreal climes.

Weather forecasters assess

Winter an infant,

Newborn upon December’s inception.

The bewildered prepare for end times while

Ancient rituals evoke

Natural connections—

Brief day

Morphs into prolonged night.
