Haibun: Autumn Equinox

We’re enjoying an Indian Summer. Here and there some leaves are changing colour, a few float along the stream into the pond. The only cygnet that remains is showing his first white feathers. His parents have changed their plumage too. The sun travels lower through the sky, wrapping our world in warmest light.

Wishing you all a beautiful Sunday and a happy September Equinox tomorrow.
