Geo.'s Solstice Poem



[First, 3 photos: "Night life at my house. All within about 1/2 hour," --Norma.]



Over our revolving lens,
Sun sends edges, silver,
Under down gray and,
At the close of day, yellow
Light turns to fire folded
And rolled in tangles.
Earth holds its pitched
Angle where gardens rise.
Refraction fills the sky.

  1. Geo, your post showed up in my feedly reader just as I was about to shut off my computer for the day but I had to come by and visit you first and tell you how much I enjoyed your poem and all the wonderful photos!

    I am off to the mountains in the morning and be gone for a week!
    Can't wait for the cooler weather!

    Nice to visit you , again!

    Be well Geo and happy!

  3. Your poem captured the colors of the end of the day as much as Norm's photos did. Outstanding both of you.

  6. Just beautiful - photos and words too. The sky changes so fast, doesn't it? I watched a sunrise change the sky the other morning. Magic!

    1. O Jenny, it is indeed a magical time of year. Overwarm here but nonetheless magical.
