This was a fun one to write to the NaHaiWriMo prompt: possibilities. I spent a bit of time revisiting the science and art of the summer solstice and the sun’s path, and then considered migratory restlessness and which south-flying bird fit my morning mood. The picture is one I took a few summer’s ago at the WWI Stonehenge Memorial overlooking the Columbia River. And there you have it!

all in season

My word! We’re closing in on NaPoWriMo 2019! Today’s prompt was to write a poem that was specific to a season, engaged all five senses, and included a rhetorical question. I played with the Japanese tanka and dodoitsu form with this one, but it just needs more work! My time is up for the day, however, so there’s the offering. Enjoy!
