The Walk (in companionship)

DSCF5962 (2)

Shoulders hunched against the wind,

hands clasped behind.

Heads nod, bodies sway,

words snatched on the air,

raised over the breaking ocean.

Palm leaves wave high

above greying heads.

The talk, of times old, and new –

football, bowls and a myriad pursuits-

now just onlookers.

Opinions pass, one to another,

welcome food for thought

in minds more active than bodies.

The paseo ends,

you turn, homeward bound.

Comrades in retirement – easy companionship.
