Field Day

Elementary school field day -
a pillar in the Lutheran school community
of San Antonio for some thirty years.
How did I get old enough to have
my own children participating?
Chew on that slice of life
and digest the repercussions.

"What shall we do now pa?"
"Our candle is burning at both ends."

The light shall not fade,
we shall make the best of these times.
Savor the moments as they occur,
fret not about the remembrance of times past.

"Will that be enough?"
"I don't know, but I refuse
to live help captive by
what might have been."
