The Flowering: A Summer Solstice Poem

© 2018 by Joyce Mason

The Sun
stops what it's doing,
poses before moving onto
give birth to the blooms, 
a selfie capturing the turning point.

We gather at Summer Solstice,
the pause that reinvigorates us
before bursting into full flower.

Cusp of Cancer:
the beat before
the final push
to be fully alive.
