Equinox 2015

As night and day
shake hands
this autumnal

The leaves tremble
as ocean winds
seek to tear them
off their tree

Long gone
are the light summer nights
long ahead
are the dark winter days

The starlings
in their murmurating millions
have flocked south
ahead of the stately goose

From the Pole
will now march
steadily south

Whether in golden sun
or screaming storms
autumn is here
as the year declines
