day and night equal
the autumnal equinox
autumn now begins
          ~
squirrels gather nuts
store food for the coming months
winter approaching
           ~
evergreens stay green
deciduous change colour
hues of red and gold
          ~
a weaker sunlight
chlorophyll stops producing
hibernation state
          ~
crops are now ready
summer sun has ripened them
the harvest begins
          ~
a bright harvest moon
provides light for the farmers
extra production
          ~
the fall migration
birds head for warmer climates
before the first frosts
          ~
halloween looming
farmers harvesting pumpkins
ghoulish faces glow
          ~
the fall or autumn
display amazing colours
both one and the same
