Autumn Equinox

Soles joy-blistered from
Dancing in the autumn gold,
Bidding welcome to darknening days.
I threw back my head and laughed, whooped
In a room of swirling energy and shared delight.

We twirled and leapt,
Stomped and stretched,
Sweated our prayers and opened our hearts
As we bid farewells to old patterns
And cleared space for that which we wish to let in:
Balance, Creativity, Harmony, Humour,

We left with seeds to sow,
Dreams to nurture,
And muscles to rest:
Hearts happy at the season’s turning
And a shared celebration of life.

  1. Oh, this is so lovely and enticing, Laurel. A splendid poem! For me it brought to mind the Whirling Dervishes, a practice that I read is about feeling music, rhythm, and belief. When the time comes, it is always time for the season to turn. Happy autumn equinox to you and your beautiful family! XO ♥

    1. Ah, thank you Diane. Whirling Dervishes, what a lovely name, and sounds like a suitable evocation 🙂 My blisters are, thankfully, less painful today, though my heart remains bursting with joy. I am so enjoying spending time with Donatella again, and your lyrical writing is as delightful as ever.
