Equinox Falling
Equinox Falling

Breath of summer faded
Shadows deep are cast
Scent of pending crispness
The seasonís light has past
Almost without notice
Hints of autumn come
Steps across a threshold
Releasing fallís velum
Evidence concedes the season
Golden glints appear
Flecks of red take over
To browns, then bare is near
Equinox arrival
 Balance of day and night
Whispers signal nature
And snow birds now take flight

This poem hits a chord with me, the autumn (the fall) is a very reflective time for me and I write very much about the year during this season. I like your use of colours and the referance to scents and change from reds to browns to bare. Sums up the season very well. Its a really nice piece..

yet another dimension to your awesome skill-set - i love the way you paint a picture with your words - the photo isn't needed, as it virtually matches the image you have created.  great work - a clear award-winner.

Very nice, Cindy. Has a very balanced feel to it, as the season does as well, following the set order and restoring a sense of calm and comfortability. Nicely done! Rich

Yes, nothing golden can stay long for us.  We have to accept what we're given and make the best of it or it means nothing.  Enjoyed your poem!

Almost without did sneak up all too quickly this year. I had begun to feel that autumn is that dying phase to winter. You've helped me realize I need to enjoy what it offers. Beautifyl Cindy. jp

Wonderful, thank you!..

Summer has gone and fall has begun it's three month run, I think that fall and spring are the most beautful seasons. Spring for the rebirth of nature's beauty, but fall is where nature really shows off. Although fall represents the dying of leaves and the coming of winter, it is during this season where nature shows you all the colors you want to see!  Just a wonderful poem about the passing of the seasons Cindy.      Henry
