Grandma Mae: A Poem

Mint summer dress,

billows around her honey-brown knees.

Tosses her smile towards me, like tinsel.

I catch her smile within my child heart and run towards her.

Memory plays tricks on me; white light streams across that moment and absorbs her laughing shadow.

Empty space over a half a century later.

That remembered garden of yellow sunflowers spilling down the mountain,

sunflowers,

their eyes brown like the eyes of Grandma Mae,

keep an eternal watch over me.
