The Good Ol' Gals (NaPoWriMo Day Sixteen)

The Good Ol' Gals Meet Again

Hey gals, it's time to meet once again,
bring your hot dish, family photos,
and, if they're willing, your men.

Remember the days in the old college dorm,
where the entrance at curfew was often a swarm
of friends and young lovers keeping each other warm?

Later, in the lounge, long after ten,
taking breaks from study or sleep,
we would exercise, laugh, and gossip again.

Where did you go, what did he say,
what did she reply then?
And who got engaged at the end of the day?

Now it's children and recipes, and grandchildren, who
pre-occupy our gossip, our activities too. Oh,
Girl friends, it's hard to imagine life without you!
