Medium Poems

1. “Autumn’s Arrival”

Golden leaves flutter down from above,
Announcing autumn’s arrival with love.
The air crisp, with a hint of cold,
Days getting shorter, leaves turning gold.

The breeze carries the scent of woodsmoke,
As the landscape changes, autumn evokes
Memories of harvest festivals and hayrides,
Nature’s transformation, as the season abides.

The trees stand tall, in hues of red and rust,
Nature’s canvas, like a masterpiece, we trust.
Autumn marks a time of transition,
A season of change, with no inhibition.

2. “Equinox Magic”

The equinox brings a mystical feeling,
As the day and night share equal dealing.
A balance achieved in the universe,
As autumn’s magic is let loose.

The leaves on trees are changing color,
Squirrels gathering nuts, a tradition to ponder.
A celebration of the harvest’s bounty,
As we share our food and love, plenty.

The air carries the sound of rustling leaves,
Nature, encapsulated in an autumnal weave.
An ethereal feeling, as the leaves fall down,
Magic in the air, all around.

The equinox marks a time of change,
As we enter a new season, so different and strange.
As autumn settles in, we watch and wait,
For winter’s snow, to seal our fate.

Long Poems

The Equinox Dance

Amidst the rolling hills and fiery trees,
The autumnal equinox doth arrive,
A time of balance and harmony,
When day and night do both survive.

The sun and moon share the sky with joy,
A perfect blend of light and dark,
Illusions of time and space destroyed,
As the celestial spheres embark.

The air turns crisp, the colors of gold,
The harvest moon doth guide our way,
In the bountiful harvest we behold,
The fruits of labor of yesterday.

The equinox is a time to dance,
To embrace the changes, to let go,
To find a rhythm, take a chance,
To feel the beat of life and flow.

As the leaves fall and the winds blow,
We sense the impermanence of all,
We learn to live in the here and now,
To cherish the moments, great and small.

The equinox is a time to reflect,
To honor and give thanks for all,
To prepare for the winter prospect,
To heed the inner wisdom’s call.

So join the equinox dance with glee,
And celebrate the balance of life,
With each step, set your spirit free,
And welcome the autumnal equinox strife.

Autumn Equinox

The leaves are changing colors
As fall begins to take its hold
The air grows crisp and cooler
As the equinox unfolds

The equinox is a time of balance
Equal parts night and day
A shift from summer’s vibrance
To autumn’s quiet display

The trees are shedding their green
In favor of oranges, yellows, and reds
Preparing for their winter scene
As they wave goodbye to their summer beds

The pumpkins start to appear
In patches and on porches alike
A sign that Halloween draws near
And the autumn harvest is in sight

The smell of cinnamon and spice
Fills the air with warmth and comfort
As we settle into autumn’s embrace
And prepare for shorter days and longer nights

The equinox reminds us
Of nature’s endless cycle of change
Of the constant ebb and flow
From which no one can escape

So let us embrace the beauty
Of autumn’s golden light
And cherish this moment of balance
Before winter’s chill takes hold at night.
