these are the spires
of the church
which sits
on the campus of my alma mater

this weekend past
i attended my 25th reunion
it is hard to believe
that many days have expired
and yet
it seemed as if only minutes ticked
as we were able to pick up where we had last left

we laughed until we cried
poured through photos and stories and wine
good wine
now that we can afford to
know the difference

as we sat around a small table
in those hours that are really not meant for those our age
we debated
tartar sauce and french fries
the legacy we will leave

the spouse of a good friend
a stranger just days before
stopped us all with the sincerest of compliment

"around this table" she said "are some high quality people"

i couldn't agree more
