Writing prompt: what have you fallen in love with lately?

He’s stolen my heart.

Humphrey looks grumpy
And sometimes he is
Does that look like a face

The meaning of ‘Solstice’ is ‘sun standing still’ and honouring the sun twice per year is a pre-Christian custom that was celebrated throughout the American and European continents.

In the northern hemisphere, the summer solstice was a time to give thanks for the blessings of the coming fruits of summer.
