Happy Face

by lulujane on February 3, 2009

dscn1864xLooking toward me
Deep set
Etched
Tracing lines
On tanned
Smiling face

As she looked toward me
Shifting her view
From shuffleboard court
I smiled back
“You look happy”
I offered.
“I am” she countered
“Win or lose”

Pausing
An afterthought added
“And I’m 84 years old”

Life is good I thought
I would like to have
known her more.
