Fall Equinox Poem


A time of balance

But balance isn’t a fixed state.

This moment

Equal light

and dark


And the moment shifts again


And again


Balance remains mutable

A continual return to the now

Of what feels good now

What serves

What’s needed


I seek balance

in flow and containment

In freedom and structure

In my yes’s

And no’s


In my wants and desires


I watch this with my daughter

Offering her containment

While also offering her the freedom

To explore

And discover herself


Right now I’m re-finding

The balance between

time together

and time apart


Time for me

Just the right amount

So that I’m fully with her when we’re together

Time for my own creative streams

Beyond my stream with her

Inclusive of our stream


Returning to self

As I model to her

What that feels like

From an embodied place


Not just a concept

But a true devotion

To riding the flows

that enliven me


As I do this

I bring more play

Creative response

Presence

Resource

Intuition

Ingenuity

To our connection


As the green Aspens 🍃

Ripen into golden hues

And a turn toward a new season begins

I listen to what rhythms

Will guide my relationship with my daughter now


From the expanse of heat

In the summer

Full of river and pool play

And wearing nearly nothing

I notice both my resistance and welcoming of more layers on my body

Meeting the here now

Giving my body what it needs now


Movement

Meditation

Devotional practices

Warm tea

Bone broth

And Nourishment


Days start out cold

And still the sun shines warmth

By the afternoon ☀️


Cold

Warm


Light

Dark


Naked

Clothed


Movement

Stillness


Polarities of wholeness

Tension points of balance

Continually recalibrating


This turn to autumn offers me moments throughout my day to listen to what’s needed now


What’s here now


What’s emerging

and what’s releasing


Like a snake shedding her outgrown skins 🐍

Fresh new layers reveal themselves

To

See

Hear

Sense

Smell

And meet

In

The

Ever unfolding

Here

And now
