On Midsummer’s Day,

Druids greet the Stonehenge dawn.

Let’s all celebrate!

Actually, I apologise: the druids do their stuff on the longest day – June 21st – and not Midsummer.  I’ve never known a satisfactory explanation for Midsummer not being the summer solstice, unless it was that the ancients got it wrong, or switching calendars got it out of synch or something.  Cynics would say it’s midsummer since summer starts on 21st and ends on the 27th, but even in the Uk that’s not true.  Summer ends on 27th July in Scotland though, in my experience 😉

My father would have been 99 today.  I must get his book finished and published.

    I believe we need to THANK the old barb Shakespeare for some of the “confusion’ – – – after all he did pen his “Midsummer’s Night Dream.”
    Well, I’m back with another Haiku from this still novice write of the same.
    Midsummer heat’s on
    Longing for mid-winter’s cold
    Heat’s longed for again

    How’s this one for the “Cycle of Life”

        THANKS for the compliment Jemima – I guess I’ve found another genre to write in besides Romance and Flash Fiction. I’d love for you and your readers to check them out.
