FRIENDSHIPS

MARILYN

Such beauty. Good bones,
Skin the colour of an August peach,
with soft undulations,
Proof of living six decades

Yet Age is kept at bay
by warmth of smile on Cupid lips,
Teeth as white as a child
Hair like snow, a soft, kinky halo

More than her glow of health, her warmth and her smile
Resides a zest for life
Pride in her children, love for her grandchildren
And a calm which I envy.

Brightly coloured Vegetables, nuts and fruit make up her diet
Some days only bananas bananas bananas.

Wilderness kayaking for days
Or a 3 month visit to Equador,
Alone
To sustain, revitalize, experience all of life.

A beaded choker, not at her throat, but circling her tiny ankle.
Across her chest rests a small bag woven in the third world.
Neither time nor age concerns her.

Warrior woman, adventuress
So alive and lovely
Consistent, steadfast, supportive,
Hippy. Sprite. Friend.

Friend
Friend
My observations and feelings following a day of laughter and comaraderie                  with two friends in Wasaga Beach, Elmvale, Barrie, Nov. 13, 2014 .
