Autumnal Equinox
© 2011 Mary Saracino

Red maple leaves
sail through the crisp morning air
returning their brilliant
cargo to the waiting lap of earth
they kiss the soil
goodbye
& bear the darkness
of winter’s biding time
saying farewell to
summer’s heat &
blazing sun
equal parts
hope & death
this day, this equinox, a reminder:
all that rots
returns
renewed
