solstice / cosmos

solstice today: the sun
touching the northern brink
the seasons switching
like ample lights, like flowers
green then pink

the sun, the earth
the angle that makes the difference
a cosmic touch of an asteroid
some million years ago

shaking up life, spilling it
into myriads of fragile, frantic
shapes - form
following function turning

into this chloropyhl green
sun yellow stawberry pink
earthly combination of genes
named cosmos

planted: today.


from June 2008
the exact date + time of solstice 2011 is: 21. June, 17.16
