Heads of grey congregate
Once a week around tea and cake
At the start of bible study ~ a
Refresher course, training/grooming for their crossing
Into the future, I always think.
70’s, 80’s, 90’s and one turned a hundred last week.
Only a few, one or two, in their 60’s,
Not close enough yet
To feel regret as the years steadily pass ~
The calm before the storm ~
Where their elders can fit a year in a day
Or so it seems as time ebbs away.
