A Month Of Sun Days

Mayan calendars of the past
Ones with kitten photographs
Both kept time on pause
Neither made to last forever

Is that the genius of it ?
The hand of ancient man
Reaching for the stars
Turning them to treasure

Stage-lighting our sky
Reminding modern humankind
Who think we can’t
Be too sure

There are more great days
On this sun-bathed paradise
It’s our turn
To paint tomorrow

Fashion stellar patterns
From galactic gems aglow
Pin a broach of hope
Upon the land

Come up with a new
Time shorthand
Let us all get
Back to the future.
