Night Falls on Solstice by Janine M. Donoho

Solstice lightA singular event—

Our sun hovers over lush Tropics.

The coy North Pole

Tips away.

Textured snow

Luminated hours shrink to an octet in

Our boreal climes.

View from my snow cave

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.
