The days are shrinking now
as the sun awakens later
and disappears sooner
than our yesterdays.


Just the opposite was true
not long ago
before the summer soltice
brought about the change.


But our years on earth
have no solstice
thus what time remains for us
keeps shrinking
even as we mark our days
with larger numbers.


Too bad we have no soltice
to help us increase
our remaining time.


But then
we’d just be going
round and round
as does our earth.
