After Christmas, Before Communion

Children of the 50’s
We were invisible
Small even when full grown
We know not to eat the last of anything.
So many rules about shame and guilt
Yet sometimes no rules applied.
The snows melt
The sun shines
Days grow longer
We wait no longer for the virgin birth
No savior for us.
Not much time left on the runway.
Not this time around.

      I love this — especially welcome as I am reading it while spending the Christmas holidays with friends a generation younger! And I agree with all of it!
