Summer Solstice

Sunlight for the Earth
Earth tilted more toward the Sun
Day with the most light

Solstice occurs when
The Sun travels its longest path
Aligned with North Star

What about Stonehenge
Druids knew how to party
Worshiping the Sun

Villagers gather
Midsummer’s Eve has arrived
The start of summer

Late sunsets, short nights
Seasons change, and so do I
You should wear sunscreen

The length of the day
The most fundamental thing
For all Earth’s creatures

Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, June 19th 2019, Summer Solstice.
