Solstice

Poetry

A poem by Priya Huffman

Lac Doré by Sanjiva

Staying true, we tiptoe
into our darkening days,

touch with trembling fingers
the cratered face of our own
mortality

cuddle closer to the fires
of our love, move with
resolve into icy days
frigid nights

still we trust
the hardened earth
will turn once more

will spit us out
onto verdant soil
moist and dark

ripe for seed

the holy ground
of return.
