Summer Solstice 2022 – A Haibun
Summer Solstice 2022
Tomorrow, June 21st, is the summer solstice here in the USA and the longest day. As summer is my favorite time of year I am always thrilled to have extra daylight time.
I will not be taking part in any group celebrations but I will be thankful and appreciating nature. Being outside is calming for me. I feel kissed by the sun, refreshed by the rain and nourished by the earth’s gifts.
I respect both its might and its anger
Shining your light on the world
Warming our spirits
