Solstice...

by - Monday, July 11, 2016


I ache today.

Not from yesterday’s impetuous garden work,
A different, deep, enthralling ache from my core.

I long to be with him.

I want to laugh, exchange smile after smile,
Indubitable joy in hewed lines on our faces,
Burrow tight, dancing to phantom music,
Sit in the shade of a summer umbrella,
Touching fingertips, softly embracing possibility.

I want an afternoon of unencumbered bliss.

This yearning so strong,
I can feel my lashes wet with anticipation.

Do I enter his mental palace with equal urgency?
Is this grounds for the sudden stir within me?

Where shall I find reprieve? Can I?

Do I even want to?

Maybe he is nothing…

But maybe he is everything, the solstice awaiting our return...
