  1. What a thought–what a poem! “so much goes unnoticed until the situation is dire.” Oh, so true. Thank goodness for the progress in learning and science made. Some days, I really do have to wonder at the silly human race. Thanks for this solid solstice poem.

  2. I love looking up into trees and sky it brings and invites so much wonder, awe and delight. Thanks for your solstice poem reminding us to look up, the lovely “sun dog” surprise and gorgeous image too! Happy solstice and Merry Christmas 🎄 Mary Lee!

  3. Yay for “sun dogs” (you know how much I love all things canine) and for the “gift” we receive when we “bother to look up”. I look up to you. Happy holidays to you and yours. 🙂

    1. You sent me googling sundogs, Mary Lee. Hooray for noticing, science, and longer light. We are lucky to have large windows looking to the west, so I can track the sunset (5:14–5 minutes later than 12/11!) each day. Wishing you a joyful Christmas.

  4. Mary Lee, may the solstice bring you peace and hope for a beautiful spring. Your poem is full of wisdom: look up and find the goodness that nature brings. Thanks for sharing the sundog, a fact I never heard of. Happy Holidays to you and I will see you next week with bells on!

  5. I missed this poem on my first round of reads for PF. What a gift to find today on Boxing Day, when we can finally sit with quiet and look up. Thanks for this surprise of a poem that reminds me to notice.
