Solstice

FB_IMG_1584841102527

As the year waxes and wanes,

as time passes,

light rises and falls.

Life comes and goes,

hearing bird song, then silence.

Summer solstice,

the world is warm,

but days will shrink and shrivel.

Winter solstice,

the promise of warmth,

locked in ice,

day lengthens, nights slowly shrink.

North and South

seasons, polar opposites.

Hot in one hemisphere,

cold in the other.

Unless, near the equator,  

seasons are less obvious, 

No frozen wastes here.

World floating in space,

around Sol, the Sun, our star,

Earth tipped at an angle,

anchored by moon,

held in mutual gravity

Eternal?

 

 

 

 

Typing left thumbed

sketch-1565384787266. Boy this is difficult. Thank goodness for apewkk he kwd rgar asgjyjseeas aowkkxgwxjee. That should just read spellchecker but I was holding my phone with my left hand and trying to type with my left thumb which doesn’t have the reach or the dexterity to type accurately. I wish I was ambidextrous.

So I tried using it again after using my right hand. How do people cope if they have injured hands. I tried typing left handed again but after trying to write the word lefthanded eight times I gave up!

The mind is a strange thing. Do you know that the whole of the right side of your body is controlled by the left side of your brain and vice versa? I’ve forgotten a lot of anatomy so I can’t remember the details. The human mind is amazing.
