Summer Solstice - Midsummer
One of the four solar holidays; the turning point at which summer reaches its height and the sun shines longest.
“I wake slowly. Alreadymy body is a twilight: Solid. Gold.
At the edge of a larger darkness. But outside
a summer day is beginning. Apple trees
appear, one by one. Light is pouring
into the promise of fruit.”
