The spring equinox is when day and night are equally long:
A perfect balance that was reflected in the azure blue
Of open water and the white cold of the ice still left on the lake.
Even the clouds seemed to find harmony
In their own reflections.
As for that bluer than a jay’s wing sky —
All I could do was to stand and gaze in wonder.

We celebrated the spring equinox
With snow and blue skies.
Sparkled from daring buds —
The fuzzy catkins
Looked lovely in their cold diamond earrings,
And the hazel flowers
Glittered in the sunlight.
Even though it was still winter on a spring day —
Those sparkly skies were beautiful and uplifting.

Last week, spring was in full bloom
With no ice on the lake
And swimming dogs in the sunset.
Today, it’s the spring equinox
And we celebrate with a silver dawn
And lots of snow.
The swans formed a heart
That seemed to be saying:
Don’t complain – just enjoy!

How glorious a greeting
The sky gives gives
When a dragon of clouds
Sweeps in to breathe light
And colour into the world.
And on the day of the Spring Equinox,
The light declares: I’m back!

Even a fresh snowfall couldn’t dim the joy of this time of year: the spring equinox.
A time when the light starts coming back, ice and snow recede eventually
And long evenings unfurl perfumed with flowers and warmth.
As one hemisphere gets shorter days and the other longer ones,
This Yin and Yang dance reminds me that we all share this world
And that we are all dependent on each other for balance and harmony.
I will love the light for it shows me the way. Yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.
