Covid Poem

"When this is over, may we never again take for granted A handshake with a stranger
Full shelves at the store Conversations with neighbors
A crowded theater Friday night out
The taste of communion A routine checkup
The school rush each morning Coffee with a friend
The stadium roaring Each deep breath
A boring Tuesday life itself.
When this ends may we find
that we have become more like the people
we wanted to be we were called to be
we hoped to be and may we stay
that way — better for each other
because of the worst."

--Laura Kelley Fanucci
