for a moment.
the sun will hesitate.
pause at a point.
then twirl in the opposite direction.
we won't feel it.
but we'll know it.
by the exceptionally long presence of the sun.
by the warming of the dirt beneath our feet.
by the hot air blowing through our hair.
and then we'll continue to know it.
for many beautiful summer nights.
oh solstice. nature's holiday.
