Autumnal Equinox


Here I am in Central Park

Sitting on my favorite bench

Reading my favorite book


It’s 3:20 on a Wednesday afternoon

Enjoying the ease from summer into fall

On the autumnal equinox.


The sun’s center

Has crossed north to south

Across the Earth’s equator.


Autumn has officially begun

  • Doggerel Dave

    If I were sitting on a bench in NY's Central Park in autumn......I would very much hope I could find my way out again before winter.....

    Atmospheric piece, Laura.

    May that Autumn bring the delight of Nature's artwork to us all Laura.

    Good write Laura.

  • L. B. Mek

    it has indeed, although
    there's still quite a few leaves, on trees
    to bronze and saunter down
    for us to crunch, in childish delight;
    but yes, for us too
    here in Hyde Park, London
    its breathtakingly
    the beginning of Autumn..
    (thanks for sharing
    I felt you words poignantly captured the ruminative essence of the season, wonderfully)

  • Neville

    You made this reader feel write there .. Words as golden as the season they portray ................ and who doesn't love an equinox eh' ........................certainly worth staying up for my friend .... 🌻
