The daily star announces Summer Solstice 2022

The daily star announces Summer Solstice 2022 Tuesday, June twenty first at 5:13 Ante Meridian Eastern standard time will find Earth's North Pole tilted closest toward sun. This demarcates most daylight hours of the year for people living the northern hemisphere. Just shy of high noon sun (lil more than twelve hours from drafting these lines) nearest star in solar system reaches highest point in the sky. Hence hasty intent to beat buzzer sound dashing off riding figurative one seahorse open sleigh madly awk cross cyber sea, aye rudder sally forth (slogging thru virtual flotsam and jetsam) with poetic obeisance paid to average size ball of Earth, wind and fire, my out of this world quasi stellar benediction, since Earthlings traveled thru space/time continuum circa complimenting summer solstice at Stonehenge when the sky is clear, the sun rises behind the Heel stone, the ancient entrance to the circle, and rays of sunlight channelled into the centre of the monument. Perchance bajillion years ago, when predecessors of present day primates (coon sitter terribly less a bomb bin hubble), versus twenty first century *****sapiens predilection for total mortal kombat graphically spiraling downward zeroing (kamikaze like), analogy drawn, viz subjective mathematical roulette curves, albeit hypotrochoids and epitrochoids staining countless grains of sand, count them yourself, yielding result (somewhere very loosely approximating 7.5 x 1018, or seven quintillion, five hundred quadrillion grains. Such minutiae less significant within the realm of present day *****sapiens, whose lives less linkedin with phenomena affecting life on this oblate spheroid, (which could come to a crashing halt predicated on burgeoning human population jeopardizing sustainable planet presuming industrial paradigm prevails, thence man/ woman kind will unwittingly trumpet, and or sound claxon (ex post facto), while warming temperatures melt glaciers, asper huge popsicles drowning multitudinous habitats courtesy of violent meteorologic cataclysms, where Noah ark will be big enough to save majority of creatures, and (wherein no art of the deal) savvy enough to wall off sky high tidal Katrina and the waves, then nature will (make a killing) relishing tidying Atlas sized tureen if necessary applying pledged finishing touches repurposing third rock for another species slated to inherit pseudo tabula rasa after Campbells, and broth hers detox polluted primordial soup i.e. once cleansed of poisons, thus...I condense my Green New Deal spiel! Midwinter night dream filled with balm of June solstice rays lackadaisical and carefree months ideal time to while away pronounced illuminated days outdoor sports a favorite choice occupies athletic population which venues witness frequent surge and spill of overtime plays another popular milieu favorable climate awakens constitutes habitués vacationers visit ashore popular waterways beachfront shoreline inundated by mass exodus of sun worshippers tidal seaboard awash along every square inch human species splashes to keep cool within ocean and bays. Six months ago bitter cold and dark snow filled skies wrought undeserved vengeance viewed from these eyes who after each and every major winter storm donned proper attire to stay warm outside while clearing walkway with shovel in hand executed repetitive motion akin to how boater plies similar (yet reversed) bodily swing of arms now readily prepares for execution of most difficult seasonal task requires usage of most complex muscle the source of poetry witty and wise. Awake to the solar celestial sea chant mourning regarding species no longer extant thus upon figurative shoulders of youth tasked with survival of humanity a behemoth nearly impossible mission younger generations unfairly saddled with obligatory filched grant courtesy when fossil fuels broadcast onset of four Industrial Revolutions spewing paradigm viz free market capitalist kant now quashing, thrashing, wrestling against rant long fostering *****sapiens dominance.

Mother nature’s ornery primates supreme display said massive breastworks broadcast inlay feat of awesome accomplishment finds yours truly humbled okay with his feeble limitations engendering ample rocky tsuris oy vey.
