Perhaps the fifth day
Isn’t just another weekday –
The cathedral to week’s end
A whisper of all that came to life in Eden.
When great whales surfaced for air for the very first time,
When pelicans and parakeets and penguins,
Found rest for their feet in Havilah’s prime.
And, it was the day before our ancestry.
For, on the sixth day we,
Came to life to have and to be,
In the dominion of created company.
