For more on how this particular poem was inspired
It was so delightful to be part of the You Tube Ridvan is Everywhere Celebrations online. And a great honour to be the epigrammatic beginning to day 7 with a brand new never before shared poem. This poem is now being included in the next issue of Tokens.
“The “Is Everywhere” Collective, which brought us this wonderful online Naw-Ruz celebration, is celebrating the Festival of Ridvan! They are excited to provide family-friendly programming for all 12 days of Ridvan and this video features their program celebrating the 7th day of Ridvan.
The Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Los Angeles (USA) is sponsoring special program for the 1st, 9th and 12th days of Ridvan but every day in between features videos sharing poetry, storytelling, music, art, dancing, cooking, and crafting—all by friends from across the world!

This collection captures the wonder of the act of creation,
