broken to share

two women lean against
an island
explaining contractions
to one who leans against the sink.

each eat their own piece
of chocolate,
broken to share,
and marvel at their flesh.

Not every conversation at the women's retreat was quite as stereotypical as this one, but it really was a beautiful moment.  We all eat our own piece of the same experience, and it is wonderful to learn from those who have experienced things before us.
