Sunlight On Her Face - Poem by michael oliver

Sunlight on her face
Her neutral form passes
A lit measured passage
White hair and shoes

Her growing age illuminated
The resrained gait spirals
Into steps or shuffles
Age's sly stubborn onset

Each meant step loose
Converses with the cobbles
Eloquent the gripped white
Her time in plastic

Sat on the bench
Peace with her space
She looks inwards smiles
Smiles in the sunlight
