Aged Mavens

Steel blue eyes matching hair
concentrating hanging on every word
Wrinkles form around the perimeter
Guarded, buttressed full natural lips

Intently hanging on every word
Kicked by unaware intruder
Mindlessly stumbles over a misplaced 	foot
focus back to ancients

Partners hair white as untouched snow
at daylight 
Oblivious to the world
They chat, express entwine 
Lands lending to the intensity
of their conversation

Bent elbow on sunlit sill 
show slits of silver of her eyes
locked in on orator slight 
response reflective repose … 

Animated expressions 
move this speech
Steely eyes locked in
rock back now broad smile. 
Lunch is over …
