The Weekend

I spent the weekend with seven ladies
that I lived with during my younger days when
we weren't ladies...
only girls
working hard
at growing up.

I knew them when they were
carefree, fun-loving, fearless
and I was
impulsive, irresponsible, edgy.
Our lives were full...
of ourselves.

We were joined together through
a mutual bond that
at times
seemed rather silly
somewhat shallow
but over the years has held fast
proving itself worthwhile.

Together again after forty years
I'm taken back to those days
so distant in time and memory
realizing that we're
the same girls
but with the sharp corners
rounded off by time
and troubles...
still working hard
at growing up.
