a Tanabata poem

July 7th is Tanabata (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanabata). I wrote this poem with that in mind.

We are heavens apart
on this sunny day
each alone in sanctuary
learning a brand new way

Perhaps tonight the stars will align
you’ll find your way; I’ll find mine

Seven is the count
of both month and day
a bridge of wings soon to appear
across the evening sky

Perhaps tonight I’ll meet you there
will you be waiting for me atop the evening stairs?
