Thanks and giving honor Ayyam-i-Ha, the days of five, as sure as stepping stones in a stream;
~~moments rising above time like waves that sing from a stirring string;
Moments as remembered as wishes hushed from lovers’ call to whispered calm,
~~as momentous as wonder grown from child’s quest to grown-up’s testament;
And we, on calendar’s bridge, in the night of the year, stand, suspended between stars in the timelessness beyond and those in the water below,
~~as though we are gifts exchanged between them.
