Solstice Solace

solstice

Will you exhaust me
like the night
expends the light
on the shortest day?
Persistently following the hours,
overcoming me
subtly, completely.
Extinguish me, and leave what is left as traces of
what once existed
and always remains.
Like sunlight off stars
in the ever present night
temporarily cloaked in day,
we are a phenomena that never goes away
