autumnal equinox

the crisp clung in the midwest air
as the wind blew slightly cool.
autumn arrived over night,
driving from one state to another,
the change in weather marked
the beginning of fall layers.
the clouds moved in and by night,
rain was covering the road.
red wine and dancing was mixed
with cozy blankets and 
short conversations
with people I hadn't seen
in three years, before life
as we had known it changed.
what brings us together
on chilly autumn nights,
a celebration of love,
appreciating those who
I have known the longest.
