honoring the equinox

September 18 - September 22 Week 30/72

this morning

far from here

the sun positioned herself

over the Equator

dancing equally with day and night

for the second time this year

heeding the call I follow the example

of a juvenile goldfinch perched and preening

on a sumac branch head turned to the east

of the milkweed nymphs huddling near the adults

on the surface of an upturned leaf

and move to the sun-warmed slate

soaking in the warmth of the waning sun

in the company of a ribbon snake
