Solstice Cures

moving forward is
always the only option
else impossible

the result of the year
is probably the most salient
of descriptive data

day to day it was
the highest highs and the
lowest lows

but in summary
there is relief
in ascension

it was a highly inspired
highly motivated
highly productive era

though muses and critics
belief comes by way
of open eyes and careful heart

where one predicted change
was astonishing improvement
which is surely more frightening

bigger and better
thicker of skin and of heart
limited in availability

still pitching a perfect game
after all these innings
and despite the errors

through genes and practice
becomes a being
worthy of the atoms
