Monday Poetry Prompt: Equinox


I’ve scheduled this prompt to post at the moment of the equinox. If you’re reading this in the northern hemisphere, welcome to autumn. In the south, spring has sprung.

This week let’s a write an equinox poem. While day and night are equal today, this is a time of change. Post where you’re going in the comments below.

  1. Equinox

    minus 2:14
    Wash in the rush of our lives
    Sunset, the new day
    minus 2:14
    Equilibrium is all that we want
    a day at peace
    Sunset, the new day
    minus 2:14
    12 hours of day, 12 hours of night
    Yin and Yang
    But only in that moment
    Like Magritte’s visions
    Hiding the chaos that is
    Sunset, the new day
    minus 2:14
