Hibernating Creatures

image curtesy of

In Mark’s blog on ‘Micro-Seasons‘, he discusses the mini-seasons of Autumn Equinox, (秋分 Shūbun), which are:

  • Thunder Lowers Its Voice (Sep 22 – Sep 27)
  • Hibernating Creatures Close Their Doors (Sep 28 – Oct 02)
  • The Paddy Water is First Drained (Oct 03 – Oct 07)

Mark describes the first micro-season this week, the second is the time when ‘hibernating creatures close their doors’, (I might have jumped the gun here as he may very well be discussing ‘hibernation’ next week”!). But thanks for reading anyway 🙂

I was born and live in rural North Wales (UK) and found poetry again after a lifetime, so grateful I did :)
