Four, maybe Five


I was happy with three,


for three is a number
of good fortune, magic,
and harmony,
not to mention the divine.

But then came number four


and my delight was complete.

Four is a number of stability,
of foundations,
and integrity.

Four there are of 
seasons,
winds,
elements,
and phases of the moon.

I was happy with four.

But now it appears
there may be five --


an odd number, five --
a slight off balancing,
but also a change of course,
a striving for the upper numbers,
and in the case of this twig,
the perfect number
will be six.


But for now, I await number five's completion
and continue to marvel.
