a morning brunch beneath the tent
with coffee, fresh rolls and jam
concluded our festivities
and sparked some cleaning sessions.
a true community event it’d been
of many helping hands.
and in the later hours of the day,
when most items were back in their places,
all that’d happened
seemed so complete
that it was time to pack up and leave.
and so it’s concluded,
our commitment and bond
and edged into our memories forever,
holding the space that will soon be filled
by a birth
and family life.
