To me, the solstice times are magical, so I asked poet and friend of Eu2Be GennaRose Nethercott to cast her spell with a few verses tapped out on her vintage 1952 Hermes typewriter.
The pendulum swings toward summer.
We bloom & unfurl & release in the new heat.
Maybe we are lilacs or maybe
we are lupins spearing along highway meridians
or maybe human — though it is all the same.
We all slip back into our skins as the season finds us
as if living were a coat we take on
& off as living suits us.
The day is long. Light is a crop
we seize & harvest & feed
to our young in fat loaves of sunbread.
Don't pretend you can tell the difference between
your hands & a tulip. Between your hair & a field
of jasmine. Between one summer & another.
All you know (all any of us knows) is that the sky
has never been more easy to love.
— GennaRose Nethercott
