“Celebrate the Summer Solstice,” A Tanka Poem

life-is-likea-cup-of-tea

I’ve stretched the limits of my Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge this week, but I have a good reason as you will see below. In my Tanka poem, I used “cheer,” for praise, and “feed the fires,” for excite.

This is also a book cover reveal!

Please join me on Thursday, June 21st, to help me celebrate the release of my first book of poetry and short stories called, “Fairies, Myths, & Magic ~ A Summer Celebration.” This book is written as a tribute to the Summer Solstice.

Celebrate the Summer Solstice

This summer solstice—
cheer the balmy rising sun
Litha blessings flow.
Triumph the light over dark,
feed the fires of midsummer.
