Change of Seasons
Twice a year a solstice
twice a year an equinox,
based on orbital positions
creating specific length of daylight.
Meteorological seasonal arrivals
rely on historical temperature ranges
And possibly school vacations.
While the astrological change of seasons
depends on ancient zodiac calculations,
telling me as I pass through the sign of my birth,
despite being centered unarguably in Spring,
that I am seasonally summer.
More proof of the cruelty of April.
