Shadows slither in early.
Overtaking us before we’re quite ready to be done with the day.

Quite comes in gently.
Reminding me the dinner needs to be cooked.

Night is longer than day.
Making some of us sad and lonely and disconnected.

Time slows down.
Begging us to take it easy and light candles.

Solstice soon arrives.
Swinging us toward longer days. ❤
