Senior Encounter by Janaki Bamunusinghe

Sunrise magazine in my hand
Pleased I am of all content
Senior Station, the most interesting
A place for seniors to gather and gain

Myself just into retirement
Curious of many a things
Contemplating, whether I am to fit in
Best is to let it come from within

Entering the premise with some doubts,
Will I be accepted, will I be welcomed?
The security trying to figure my presence
Says “It’s Room No.3, you may go in”
Although amazed by his guess
Rest assured, I make my way in.

While I searched for a place to sit
Someone said “Good Morning, are you new”
Isn’t that the best, one could hear?
For someone to feel so received

The gathering started right on time
Punctuality is a great sublime.
Pretty ladies took over the floor
Captured the hearts of all and more.
One after the other the acts followed
Fitness, knowledge, history and galore

All senses in use to its fullest
Enjoyed by all, that’s for sure
Bringing their voices whenever desired
Captivatingly selfless with expression

Gentlemen balancing fun and joy
Ladies keeping them well occupied
All came to an end without a feel of time.
A kindly bunch served tea and some treats .
Well packed, from the best of place

Thank you, young ladies for the treat
All of you so overly sweet
Young as they are, making us feel so
Long life to thee and good health for us too.
