Magic Solstice Tree

Magic Tree, Watercolor by Cheryl R. Long

In a clearing not far from here,

a tree shimmers and draws

tendrils of thought

into its constant making.

You may braid a world

into being inside its thousand

lights. Find it in the old

growth forest that roots

itself in your ten toes,

explodes stars through fingertips,

eyes, your hair lacing leaves,

little lights to the solstice sky.
