Harvest Moon–September 20

In 2021, the Northern Hemisphere autumn equinox comes on September 22. The full moon falls less than two days earlier, on September 20. Thus, for the Northern Hemisphere, this upcoming full moon – the full moon closest to our autumn equinox – is our Harvest Moon.

Not the harvest moon but a golden sunset with a golden moon
O Golden Moon

Harbinger of end of summer
rich harvest gathered
moment of rest and gratitude

Precursor of chillier days
longer nights with
holidays to celebrate
year's ending.
