Summer Solstice 2010

in the dark night
in a cabin in the woods
I hear footsteps near my bedroom window
crunch crunch crunch
adrenalin shoots through my sleep
I fling covers
jump up
see I'm in my own home
it is daybreak
the intruder is the Solstice Sun

I'm a fan of midnight not morning
so don't know the wonders of dawn
yet I rush out to the front yard
in my nightgown
surprise the birds into song
perform ritual with camera
as the world wakens to it's very normal start
I retreat to bed in wonder
remember this happened last year too
