An Uneasy Disclosure-dedicated to my grandmother

23 Nov

Pictures resurfacing

an unease in disclosure

black and white

teared and attached

together

 

shaking and weeping

sobs echoing

reverberating

through glass windows

as she sat there

sprawled and scattered

 

what will become

of all these distant memories?

hollowed and tainted

damaged and frail

 

she is now squinting

puffy green eyes

now glowing with humor

there her grandma is

underneath the plastic protective cover

dressed like royalty

wearing a tender grin

 

and she knew

once upon a time long ago

these memories

defined wholesomeness

now stored as antiquity

for all to gaze at.

    Funny how our memories get caught under glass or in acid free boxes and the lucky ones in lockets close to our hearts.

      that is funny you said that darkangel because i actually was considering making lockets out of pictures of people who i held/hold closest to my heart :/

    The love between you and your grandmother is unmistakable. She must have been quite a lady for you to be able to write something from such deep and loving emotions. I love how you loved her. Yes, this is a beautiful tribute to your grandmother and, I’m sure it’s made her smile.

    strong close in this poem…it really just reinforces how strongly you miss her, and love her. Love your descriptors- the way you see your grandmother as well… heightens the emotion so well, particularly when you talk about her eyes being full of humour. Nice work Chanzi- stu mcp
