Day after the Summer Solstice in the Flying Goose Tavern

As we lift another glass of porter,
what matters it that days grow shorter?

Even in the fading light,
we need not fear the night’s cold bite.

Warm friends and cold drafts warm our hearts,
aided by a game of darts!

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      Yes. Bit of an oxymoron there. I could have set it in Britain where even a warm draft would do, but then a warm “draft” might still be a bit of a contradiction!

        It’s not a given — has passed both houses of the legislature, though, and will likely be signed by the Gob. It needs Congressional approval, though. It’s a good solution — will stop the 6-month disruptions that are injurious to health & happiness, and will allow us the light when we need it, in the afternoons! I hope it works. There have also been rumors that some other parts of the country are considering it too, though I don’t remember where.

    Ah, and did you see the solstice in? I love the couplets. Love the look of the place as well. But I’m certain a few hours in that little spot and I wouldn’t know day from night!
