It's not possible to physically pick up the stones of Stonehenge and then arrange them for this equinox,  rather the equinox is something that rarely happens. I think the writer is trying to emphasise how difficult it is for him to see the shortest glimpse of their partner in the sunlight because there is so little sunlight. The Stonehenge simile and the odd suggestion that a human could control when the equinox happens, emphasises that the writer has no control over this sunlight. It might also imply that the writer wants to see their parter in the sunlight and cherishes these moments because he focuses on the sunlight shining on their partner's arm. 

Thank you very much !!!!!

Ephemral ray here means that a ray of light which is there for a very short period of time. So the last line here means that they were trying to do something which was almost next to impossible.

It was hard for us to meet together, though we still managed to come together.

The time for meeting together was very rare though we made to come together.
