Eclipse

hibernation

slowness

interiority

clearly, the solstice has passed.

clearly …

the inner ball of light takes on a glow

becomes more distinct

as the outer light fades.

there is a relief.

rain.

there is a phase, justified by nature,

for retreating.

for thinking, for curling the energy inwards.

digestion. of the year.

(of the heat and glaring light and sounds)

rest.

incubation.

thoughtlessness.

reflection.

the calm steady darkness enveloping,

the thick moist curtain soundproofing from all except drops

tiny thumps.

a ritual, not sure which, clearly another turning of seasons,

the body shifts gears, the mind remains vacant
