Celebrate the Autumnal Equinox with Garden Haiku 9/22

Friday, 11 September 2020 12:42

This year's autumnal equinox, the day when autumn begins, falls on September 22. The word "equinox" is derived from the Latin aequinoctium, from aequus (equal) and nox (noctis) (night). Twice each year, on the first day of spring and first day of autumn,  the sun passes directly above the equator as the earth makes its yearly trek around the sun, making the daylight and nighttime hours approximately equal; it is the moment of celestial balance between light and dark. This year we will mark this natural occurrence by practicing our literary impulses and writing garden-based Haikus. Haiku is short form poetry, originating in Japan, often three lines in length with alternating syllable counts of 5, 7 and 5. They are fun and easy to write, and often powerful. We will use the gardens in the early evening equinox light for our inspiration. Masks and social distancing required. $10; space is limited and pre-registration is required via this link. This event is weather dependent and will be postponed in the event of rain. For more information call 617-333-0924.
