Salutation #166

(Seasons of Sky)

the long count calendar
is not a measure of when.

It is a measure of why.

The seasons within it
are not terrestrial in nature.

They are celestial
and are - therefore - cycles
in the spirit.

It is not meant to measure
a spread of time.

it is meant to measure
a completeness of remembrance.

it doesn't answer us when.

It asks us why.

What else is it for?
