A Story for Solstice

She followed the setting sun for as long and as far as she felt safe traveling by herself.

She climbed atop a fallen tree blocking her path and wished for quiet company in the gathering darkness.

Turning around, she was startled by the seemingly sudden appearance of the moon, hanging low and full on the horizon, like a mother, heavy with milky sustenance.

She followed the moon for as long and as far as it took to get home, knowing she was not alone.
