Three Italian Ladies
having dinner. Together.
Glasses of wine prism ambient restaurant light –
two red, one white – raised to celebrate life
and being together.
They share encounters of contentment and disappointment,
love and sorrow, happiness and expectation.
They honor the traditions that passed before them,
their tales woven into the invisible
fabric that keeps them whole –
confidently wrapped in the safety
of being there for each other;
sharing with other sisters of the soul
and preserving joys and wisdoms
gathered on the journey.
