An older lady
white-haired
lives two doors down from me

She is retired
she loves nature
and takes long walks
She reads on her balcony

A friend of hers,
an older man
lives across the parking lot
in one of the four buildings
that compose our little community

He is in the hospital now
who knows if he will return?

She often gazes
unfocused
at his unit

unknowing
the healing flow of love
travels with her gaze
