A grandmother holds the hand
Of her shy little granddaughter
They have the same smile

Famous

When I was a little girl,
my only wish, was that 
someday, I would be famous.

My grandmother always said,
"you can be anything you want to be,"
and I believed her, Maybe, I did not believe in me.

Time to Play



Pick your bush clean.

"You can fill 
your bucket faster ,
and have more time to play".

When my Mom was picking blackberries,
long sleeves and jeans.

My Grandmother would tell her kids,

Pick your bush clean

Dedication

To my Grandma whose bond I share
For everything you have done with love and care

So much and yet you give more
Endless are the things I thank you for

Here is something simple, a mere piece
From the gifts you helped nurture and release

Short Grandmother poem by Lisa Stoffer| Details | |

Grandma Hearts Grandma

I never met Grandpa
so I do not know
if he ever went dancing
or stubbed his toe.
But I do know
one thing-
Grandma loved him.

And Grandma died
when was in 8th grade.
So we didn't talk
I am afraid.
But I do know
one thing-
Grandpa loved her.

Short Grandmother poem by Nola Perez| Details | |

SEEING THINGS

January & February this year, 
prescription lenses lost. I count
the cost (it cost me dear).

A place for everything
and everything in its place,
my grandmother said,

but I only know 
where my glasses are
when they're on my face.

Short Grandmother poem by Ray Dillard| Details | |

Grandmother's Turkey

My Grandmother's recipe
Here, yet she is gone.
Plump turkey stuffed with veggies,
Spices sprinkled on.
Basted until done.
Delicious,
YUM!


I'm most thankful for family!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mothers Day,
To a very special mother,
Tons of hugs and kisses,
Even though you're just my grandmother,
You're the best mother ever,
And no one can disagree,
And even though you're just my grandmother,
You're still a mother to me.

Short Grandmother poem by Josey Portas| Details | |

It all adds up

One falsely accusing grandmother,
One misunderstanding brother.
One tear upon the cheek,
One heart that is very weak.
One life that was sad from the start,
One pair of lovers torn apart.
One very chastising world,
And one very sad, lonely girl.

Short Grandmother poem by Marquis Turner| Details | |

MY GRANDMA MY HEART

To you I am thankful, 
for all that you give.
To you I owe this life thatI live.
You taught me to be all I can be.
Often I failed,
Yet you didnt give up on me.
In my life there will never be another,
To hold a candle to you , my dearest grandmother.


Short Grandmother poem by R Kumari| Details | |

Brought up my late Grandmother (2005)

Grandmother Grandmother can’t you see
That all of you is a part of me
Whether you were absent you were not
I have got everything you have got
Grandmother Grandmother you fed me strong
Even though you were gone all along


I love you and miss you so much

Short Grandmother poem by Taylor Graham| Details | |

Stricture

A clearing vision fails.
Nothing is what it seems.
Your inheritance, scuffed
lenses, ammonia, sins
of a grandmother’s house.
Of a grandmother’s house
nothing departs unchanged.
Elbows, knees and knuckles
scraped raw by scour-pads,
solvent, sting of scrubbed air.

Short Grandmother poem by Anthony O. Mitchell Jr.| Details | |

Happy Holidays Dear Faye 2K12

May your colors which unique shine thro' upon
Family as the brilliant Christmas lights do,
And yet after the white blanket has gone;
May this joyous Season's peace find you true.
May hearts warmth find you this grand Holiday.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year's dear Faye!

Short Grandmother poem by Glen Enloe| Details | |

Heirlooms

Opal grandmother eyes,
watery milk glass veins
in stick arms
throb weakly,
tense tight white thread
into frayed, thin quilts.

There is a slight rustle
of desperation, a hope
of completion
as smudged pigeons
shatter wind
and winter gives up
its gin clear grace.

Short Grandmother poem by Rob Vittozzi| Details | |

My Grandmother

My Grandmother I miss her so
Her smiling face when I see her
She could always make my day better
But she had gotten ill
Went to a better place
My grandmother I miss her so 
Is always in my heart and soul
She will always be forever and always.
My Grandmother I miss her so

Short Grandmother poem by Robert Pettit| Details | |

The Best Pie Baker

Grandma was the best at baking pies. 
That was a fact nobody denies. 
Apple, rhubarb, sweet potato, cherry, 
pumpkin, pecan, and don't forget blueberry. 
In the kitchen, grandma could be found. 
Her fresh-baked pies were the best around.

Short Grandmother poem by chamonique knowles| Details | |

Legendary women in my life

The smell of my mother
It’s the Coco Chanel fragrance she wears every day
It’s the scent of her make up
It’s the aroma of coffee and spearmint candy
My grandmother smells of sugar and roses
Of thank giving dinner and sweet potato pie
Of chocolate and perfume
Of spice and chamomile tea

Short Grandmother poem by Amy Frazey| Details | |

The Only One

There is only one yawn in existence.
It passes from person to person in the space of a blink.
Extremely contagious, you can catch it by sight alone.
This person, that person, a person in the next room. 
Who will catch it next? 
You, me, your grandmother?
Watch for the yawn and see.
