solstice (17, 1am, prompt 13)

small women disguised as flowers
dancing like daisies, swaying in the hush
moonbeams for halos,
shaking seeds inside of coffee cans
to make maracas.

the frenzy makes quite a noise
women tapping on the concrete
to free the spring into its
summer folds,
placing the other seasons on a shelf
and making midnight
a few minutes longer
if only to hear the howls.
