Summer Peace

I took this photo of the Summer Solstice Sunrise at Aztec Ruins in New Mexico on Friday, June 21, 2019.

Summer Peace

This old Egyptian boy
is finally at peace
now that the Spring has gone,
and Fall is drawing near.

Egyptian Spring tormented
him with blooming hopes,
defying all logic...

He knew throughout his life
that those Egyptian Springs
have always burned his lungs
with fifty-day sandstorms,
and yet somehow he thought:
"This Spring could be different."
He foolishly inhaled!

But now, Summer is here,
and now he can exhale,
relinquishing all hope,
reclaiming sweet surrender,
and waiting for the Fall,
his sweet eternal Fall.
