poem- grandma June 28, 2014

I have lost her words

The narrative spun away

across the void of time.

I no longer hear her voice

echoing through my mind.

But here

a grocery list

a flash of history

Though mostly she is lost

to time and left

a mystery.

    Elegant! One of my favorite words to describe a favorite poem. Shawn, this gem is deserving of inclusion in a college anthology…or at the very least, spray-painted on the side of a bridge! Wonderful in the extreme!

  6. Nice. Love the conciseness. I just wrote about my grandfather-and imagining the grandmother I never knew.
