Eyes of piercing true,

In that lace

just for me.

The brevity of beauty

Is like an Iris blooming in spring

A grandmother holds the hand

Of her shy little granddaughter

They have the same smile

Love shines forever

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

Spices sprinkled on.

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 |


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 Jim Grecco| Details |

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.

Little Boy

<em><center>Little boy runs from
his grandmother up a tree...

He needed spank'n

Discipline takes time</em></center>

My friend (Brandy) 

Got some candy, 

From her mother (ma) .

My friend (Brandy) 

Got more candy, 

from her brother (Bro) .

My friend (Brandy) 

Got lots of candy, 

From her grandpa (Pa) .

She got a tooth ake

Is it a mistake! ! ? ? 

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 |

To you I am thankful,

To you I owe this life thatI live.

You taught me to be all I can be.

Often I failed,

Short Grandmother poem by R Kumari| Details |

Brought up my late Grandmother (2005)

Grandmother Grandmother cant 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 |


A clearing vision fails.

Nothing is what it seems.

Your inheritance, scuffed

lenses, ammonia, sins

of a grandmothers house.

Of a grandmothers 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 |


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 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.

inspired by another member's poem

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 chamonique knowles| Details |

Legendary women in my life

The smell of my mother
Its the Coco Chanel fragrance she wears every day
Its the scent of her make up
Its 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.

Short Grandmother poem by Sarah Cassleman| Details |

My Heritage

My heritage is a mixture
Of backgrounds.  Let's start on 
My Dad's side of the family.

My Dad's mom is Irish and English.

My Dad's dad is Irish and German.

My Mom's mom is Scottish and Irish.

My Mom's dad is blood Hungarian.

So in other words,
I'm a mutt!  or as others say,
"Heinz 57!"

Short Grandmother poem by Caleb Smith| Details |


My great-grandmother lived in a little green house
Down a lonely Arkansas road
I used to go and visit her there
On days when summer winds blowed

She told me stories of times long gone
And hours passed as I would watch
Her ancient hands open, piece after piece
Of sweet smelling butterscotch
