On Witch's Thanksgiving

On Witch's Thanksgiving
When day and night are of equal length, balance holds my thoughts.
On Witch's Thanksgiving
A full moon will shine on ripe harvests below, coven basking in her glow
Leaves will fall to quilt our mother, grounds growing colder
Earth stands for a moment in equity, ubiquitous female
On Witch's Thanksgiving
The Autumnal Equinox
I will pay homage to both sides
The yin and the yang, the dark and the light, fire and water, joy and sorrow
How brief this balance
Will be
Before we are set swirling once again on a titled world
Living a skewed existence
On Witch's Thanksgiving
Things hold still- suspended, peaceful
Before the Fall.
