Poetry Party #24

Christine from Abbey of the Arts invites us to join in her latest Poetry Party. If you play, please link over to her blog and post so that she can visit, and others can join with your words... Iambic pentameter not required!

Poetry Party #24!

I select an image and suggest a title and invite you to respond with your poems, words, reflections, quotes, song lyrics, etc.

Today is the autumnal equinox, a time when the sun rests above the equator and day and night are divided equally. It heralds in a season filled with change and the brilliant beauty of death. I invite you to write your own ode to autumn. What are the gifts, challenges, and invitations for you in the days ahead?

in the stillness
and the quiet
softly, listening
stark beauty
death to self
waiting, watching as
the realization of change within
falls on me
the Voice
the place of Rest
I can only call it
