September Creative Challenge

Poetry for the Autumnal Equinox

The autumnal equinox falls on Thursday 22 September, when our daylight and night-time share an equal amount of time. It’s a time for reflection, saying goodbye to the summer months and welcoming the new colours of autumn.

For this month’s creative challenge collect some words that conjure up what the change in season means to you and turn them into a poem. You can use any form of poetry and you can call in the help of a friend or colleague over a cuppa.

We’d love to share your poems if you’re feeling brave.

autumn leaves…
reconsidering
the path I’ve chosen

Rob Scott (Australian Haiku Society.org)

Fall, Leaves, Fall

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.

Emily Brontë
