Fall Equinox by Joan McNerney

Fall Equinox


Morning light reveals

silhouettes of branches

against a dove grey sky.


Hurry, pick gardens of bright

vegetables. Time to cook

big pots of soup, yeasty breads.


Wearing red, orange,

yellow leaves, trees

sashaying in the wind.


Countless shades of leaves,

shapes of leaves,

sounds of leaves.


Children come from school

jumping in piles of foliage

shouting with delight.


Flying carpets of sugar maple

leaves unfurl along our road

as frost draws closer.


Amazing how many stars

fit inside my windowpane

alongside a harvest moon.
