This New Auspicious Day

This new auspicious day, in any given year, comes with blushing hue of dawn when that brilliant sphere which sets a trenchant course so earth won’t go astray shows us its abounding span of light, for midway through our planet’s cycle, June’s Solstice time is near. . . Winter left me feeling hollow, but I now can hear trills of birds, smell lilac, and see the sky more clear. And it’s in the warmth of sun that I wish to stay this new auspicious day! Blooming like a sunflower, radiating cheer, I’m in my element when summer months appear. The sun beneath my skin ignites desire to play. Who can think of labor when lust for life gains sway? Time to shine in Zenith sun is time I hold dear. . . this new auspicious day.

The 3rd line of the last verse really get's under my skin too (steady boy, steady) and why did you have to utter the L-word in the next line, anyway? Don't you realize...Congrats my friend! - Tim

Good grasp of the Rondeau form, dear Andrea. I feel the Solstice coming only when looking at the calendar as summer is not only three months here. Thank you for your comments. Love, Iolanda

Such a beautiful poem and timely now as the Solstice approaches, Andrea. Regarding the contest, please feel free to take your own approach and your own interpretation. Each entry has a different interpretation. There is no single one that is correct -- all interpretations are welcome. Love, Carolyn
