"Wind to thy wings, beloved."

A phrase found in the Taledras tongue, like shay'a'chern. The first part - zhai'helleva - means "wind to thy wings." Akin to the Vulcan greeting/farewell of "Live long and prosper" or "Peace and long life."

The Taledras are alternately known as Hawkbrothers and in some cases, Birdkin. This because they form close emotional bonds with birds - usually only one particular bird, but sometimes as many as a flock. Thus, the expression of "wind to thy wings" takes on special significance to the Taledras.

The second part - ashke - simply means beloved. Also a part of the word "shay'kreth'ashke" meaning soulmate or lifebonded.
