Remembering the passing of Baha'u'llah, the Glory of God.
Ascension of Baha'u'llah1

I awaken
to the memories of past commemorations
of the Ascension of Baha'u'llah--
attended by my mother and I
at the Baha'i Center in Las Vegas--
check the time
and smile.

It's 3 a.m.,
and time intone the Tablet of Visitation2.

It was at 3 a.m. on 29 May 1892,
the Sun of Baha
set on the material plane
and rose in the spiritual realm.

Now 129 years later,
in every nation on Earth
the lovers of the Glory of God--
at 3 a.m. local time,
to remember His passing
and feel His presence
when we read
His Tablet of Visitation.
