Flight and Gravity

.
icarus flight & gravity
.
a story,
a recollection
of 78 summer solstices
bundled in a single thought
of when I was a young carpenter
with muscles— sweating,
lugging boards from lumber stacks 

to houses being framed  
……………………………………….  a thought
that segues into a later solstice

down the line along the way, a solstice
of love and its making, a tale
with science thrown in & math, 
geometry, physics, stuff
I’d read somewhere sometime,
picked up, stuff that fits and shifts 
stuff all good — flight
and gravity
