Solstice Flower

Whosoever would lash his coat
about him and burst out
into the contagious
December night in search
of coming winter would find
the soul of a yellow dog
yowling at the Full Cold Moon.

He would see you and silence
his cries, waiting your approach,

You are of the same genus.

Travel together
along the same hardened
path, for surely you shall find
that solstice flower
hardy and rising
above the new snow.
Pluck it and bring it home
to place in an old Mason jar.

Day 5 of November.  Today’s inspiration comes from Day 4 of Robert Brewer’s Poetic Asides prompt to write “Whosoever _____”   poem. (Although, I did not get around to posting there.)
