Time Marked

Photo by SnaggleTooth Sept 22 2010
Autumnal Equinox
Equal parts dark n light
Time marked in thought
Day, night, death, life
Rewards seen
Knowledge gleaned
Harvest near
People dear
Gifts formed
Ideas born
Hard felt knocks
Neighbors talk
Rest some more
Feel restored
Getting less
Wanting more
Time marked in thought
Day, night, death, life
........................ poem by SnaggleTooth today

That photograph is absolutely stunning, Snaggle! The colors and the serenity are just so so beautiful. Your poem is so reflective and so thoughtful...

I like your poem, Snaggle. And it goes perfectly with this season change.

One then two
then back again
What is one
without the other
what is the other
without the one

Thought provoking poem.
Like the picture.

This is a good metaphor for seasonal changes and more...

Talon, Thanks. I've got quite a collection growing with no two exactly the same- Would make a great calender or anthology one of these days. Alot has happened to bring those words to me
that way.

Lynn, Thanks- These were truelly my thoughts of the occassion.

Ellis, All is relative-
Without each other, nothing has meaning, I believe... Glad you like the words.
I again timed errands to be on the bridge at sunset, n wasn't disappointed!

Opaque, Welcome to ESR comments! Thanks for noticing the season metaphors. This seems to often be a pivotal day for me in many respects.

Love the photo. The changing seasons seem to be a popular subject on blogs at the moment.

LLcoolJ, It's more than a meterological calender change for me- It's an anniversary / turning point of sorts. (n a good blogging excuse too).
