December Solstice (poem)


Solstice darkness is greater, longer
than sun’s extended rays which reach
my fingertips eight minutes later than when
they first sizzled out of their thermogenic home

This electromagnetic radiation
warms cool blue earth
invisibly touches my skin

In the chill of Cimmerian nights
I wait for tender light to pierce
the crepuscular twilight

Underneath December’s star
silence stirs the night
life transgresses, progresses

Remember the perpetual anticipation
deep agony of waiting in darkness
with hope and desire of morning light

Let heat of starlight touch you
and ignite a long-awaited fire
