granny

Now you are here dear daughter
I remember my Granny even more.

Summer time
her hamlet cottage
sisters grown by
feathery grass fields
tree dangle caterpillars
tiptoe stream
and weighty encyclopaedia.
Gold trimmed lipstick
bedside teasmaid and
coral pink talc powder puff.
Delft coffee cup
crochet doily covered and
Clayderman ivories on tape.
Sweet cherry tomatoes
rainbow bell peppers in
Saharan heat greenhouse.
Caramel shortbread
still warm, hidden
in a worn tartan tin.


Inspired by mothers day
