and now the sun

is low and still

on the southern horizon

of the northern hemisphere

the regeneration

of the earthly cycles

by infusions of life force

as a new year's seed time

one more day and the sun

will begin its daily rise

to bloom full

in its opposite constellation

in the height of summer

exactly where it is now

in the northern horizon

of the southern hemisphere

north and south

the facing mirrors of the world

reflecting the same

diamond-sparkling sun

the same diamond-sparkling
