June (summer) solstice

heat touching my neck

saying spring has departed

June sun rules the sky

once fragile and new

now boisterous and green

long summer days

  1. Happy Midsummer, Janice! 😀🌺 A lovely poem with great contrast between the Spring and Summer –
    ‘once fragile and new

    now boisterous and green’
    That sums it up perfectly!
    A special day today … I just don’t want to think of the days already growing shorter. Summer must be savoured first!
