A new beach painting inspired by by summer poem of the same name
Women of a certain age
We run down to the beach in our brightest ,loudest gear
We are women of a certain age , and you should know we’re here
Our friendship means so much to us, we have done a lot of stuff
We’ve been mums, and wife’s and workers , sometimes it was rough
Our bodies have been altered by the ravishes of time
Sometimes when I look down, I’m not even sure it’s mine!
Hot flushes and forgetfulness, and even thinning hair
There are times when life can get too much, bystanders beware!
But we celebrate our bingo wings, our stretch marks ,the extra pounds
They’re signs that we have lived, and loved ,survived the battlegrounds
We are warriors with cellulite , we wobble, but we’re strong
We are women of a certain age and our struggle is lifelong!
