#14 summer solstice 2017

I am catching up in the garden, pulling out the bolted lettuce. It is as if the June heat gave every plant, weed and seed a boost of energy. The scattering of shade created poems of light and shadow in the long June day.

I scatter worlds with shadows.
I hear the light beat on the other side.
