Solstice

entry picture

Sunshine concealed

Her darkness within

A summer so long

Whilst waiting for him

She bathes in his rays

His passion so hot

Today's just a burn

His tomorrow forgot

But she never moves on

Till still

Turns to stone

A cinder filled heart

On a solstice alone

Thanks Nigel & Stephen for comments & all who liked

I like that 'flames of time' line Nigel☺

I always feel I sound more 'poetic' if I write something that sounds sad Stephen 😁 I need to do something about that, it's a creative conundrum- Is it possible to sound cheerful and poetic? Your answers on a postcard please!

Flames of time
blow themselves out
feelings ice up
heart so cold.
