This year in southern England the summer solstice is a washed out soggy affair and feels like summer hass been stolen. Gray clouds dribble and drizzle inbetween the down poursof rain. both my kids grown and out doing their own thing making me feel older than i am. Wanting out from the grease filled brick box where i work to find some sunshine and a sea view.

My family are at an inbetween stage the children grown up but not enough to be self supporting yet. the gray skies getting me down as i sulk and grave the sun of a real summer solstice.

Fetch my solistice

Goodbye long nights waiting

Suns warmth missing.

  1. In WA state, usually we ape England’s weather. But we’re having a week of sunshine right now, while Texas gets 30″ of rain. Go figure. Global warming is a bit unforgiving it seems. CA has a 2 year drought.

  2. I can really feel the desolation of your solstice and I’m sorry it’s been rained on (literally). Seems like such a let down for sure, I feel that. Wonderfully written and evocative, though. ❤

  3. Your disappointment is clearly felt. I wish I could send some of our sun and warmth, we’ve been having late summer heat and unforgiving sunlight for a week now.
