Where Days Are Born

Updated: Jul 2

7.5.24 New Moon

I was a little girl in the north

at the far edge of a zone

where summer darkness began

long after bedtime

I’ve learned

that a moon-sized core spins in earth’s belly

where days are born

that lightning

creates waves

of global heartbeat

that every sunset

every horizon

depends on where we stand

that every day 

we tell a story 

of light

My Summer Solstice murmuration appeared in Yes Magazine on June 20, 2024. Click here for the Spanish version.
