Seasons of the Sun–a Villanelle

Sunrise over Sheep Mountain

Winter solstice sunrise glows and finds the arc
of season’s seeking arrow, its final icy end,
Stonehenge mountains, where light strikes its ancient mark.

This solstice sunrise lends end to winter’s dark,
This beam that glows before next season’s march begins.
Winter solstice sunrise glows and finds the arc

when the sun creeps north, and gleams a glowing spark.
Early shine ascending ‘til equinox transcends
Stonehenge mountains, where light strikes its ancient mark.

Three Forks and Sheep Mountain flank sunbeams’s stark
ascendance, springtime’s even days, recalling when
Winter solstice sunrise glows and finds the arc

that leads northward, as time and stars embark.
Summer solstice on Reed Draw, northern boundary’s end.
Stonehenge mountains, where light strikes its ancient mark.

Rocky Mountain monoliths measure light from dark.
Mountain henges mark the march, mark when time portends
winter solstice sunrise glows and finds the arc
Stonehenge mountains, where light strikes its ancient mark.
