On June 20, 2016, Karmê Chöling staff and guests gathered around a lively fire to celebrate the summer solstice with an open mic. Programs manager Emily Forse played the part of the solstice queen and led revelers to a bon fire that served as a stage. Under the glow of an enchanting strawberry moon, merry makers shared music, stories, and games. Sarah Paolino, our receptionist, led the group in the creation of a group poem. Volunteer Jason Cheu captured playful moments.
Untitled Summer Solstice Poem
By Karmê Chöling Staff and Guests
A shredding clamoring posterior is starlight
the earnest ransack cumber
We twist secret tunneling bird watchers
spoke by strawberry moon blessed health
obstruct from lovebird labyrinth through
half gone molt
knew semblance rooted
