I love the thought that the spring equinox brings balance -- day and night are poised and balanced and about to tip over on the side of light. Isn't this a wonderful thought?
To welcome Spring I'd like to share with you a poem by Alex Langstone
Spring Equinox Poetic Meditation
As the light finally catches
Its twin faced dark
A brief truce is called
As the balance of opposites
Merge and entwine
As new life approaches
From the cold dark earth
And the egg of creativity
Breaks at the crack of dawn
The leaping hare dance.
As the rain and wind swirls
Around the budding branches
The sunset approaches and equinoctial
Balance allows the suns rays
To burst through the bank of grey cloud
The illuminating rays of the equinox sun
Allow the daffodils to glow
As they dance in the whirling wind
Joyfully they nod to the descending fiery orb
Beyond the solitary ancient oak.
