haiku heights: birth

equinox, mabon
the wheel balances & turns
from birth to fading

there is evenness
between light and dark today,
the birth of autumn

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Happy Autumn Susan…sad to see the summer end? Everything seems to be moving so fast, let’s enjoy the fall, okay?

    • Happy autumn, SFAM! No–not sad in the least–autumn is my favorite season. Just playing with the prompt from HH today. On the equinox, to have the word be birth, I could see no other way to write these haiku but from the perspective of a wheel of seasons/life.

    Autumn is my favorite season and I always feel a “quickening.” Your haiku speaks to me. Thank you.

    These are perfect for the beginning of Autumn. The second is my favourite although I like “from birth to fading” too. I am on the fading end LOL Thanks so much.

    Fall means balance to me, my fave season which you have described so well in your haiku.

  12. That is very clever ~ mixing the science with the poetry!

  13. Jolly says:

    Spring was just born here, so it’s a different kind of quickening. Even so, you’re right, the light and dark are balanced. Nice set.

  14. ALWAYS praying for your peace~ this is electrically stimulated ~ Blessings friend
