Women Of A Certain Age

What they’ve done they’ve done,

this gathering of women

seventy years and older.

With nothing left to prove,

they are open to themselves and each other.

No topic is too large or too deep

(world peace, life after death)

or too small

(vitamin B12 , comfy shoes)

for their contemplation.

They hold these concerns as tenderly as they hold each other.
