Kids giddy with joy
staying up late to play
Summer Solstice.

All night bonfires
singing, dancing, having fun
Summer Solstice.

Tilling the soil,
cultivating the earth
life renewed.

Mother Earth
bestows sustenance
life renewed.

Rejoice in life
fires blaze and celebrate
promising season.

(Tanka)

Sleepless children
longer days, shorter nights
full-house in the summertime
parents miss intimacy
steeling quickies now and then.
