Autumn Equinox




Once again, evidence that we are carried through points of tipping to points of balance relentlessly. As the earth’s axis passes the parallel point, for an instant we are balanced between light and dark, between summer and winter, between which-ever poles our lives balance on. I like to take at least one deep breath to notice that there is both constant change and balance. What in me needs to be rebalanced today? What in me resists moving forward? Letting go? Shifting weight from one foot to the other?

brightly, but casts

It is a time of balance

and tipping toward

the inevitable.


I sit on this bench

wanting

something

I can’t name



Something like

a guarantee…


Something like

permanence.


All evidence

to the contrary.
