Vernal Equinox

 VernalEquinox 800

It’s another Vernal Equinox,
Another March Equinox,
The First Day of Spring,
When the Sun’s most direct rays fall on the equator,
A state of equilibrium throughout the Earth,
On this day,
Day and Night are of almost equal durations at most time zones in the world,
No longer day and shorter night,
Nor shorter day and longer night,
This is the work of God,
Waiting patiently for the next Vernal Equinox…
