Super Bowl Sunday
We had the snacks, including chips
And watched the game in little clips
Including the commercials, though,
Which ones I missed I wouldn’t know.

For grandkids joined us for the Bowl
With seeing touchdowns not the goal,
But rather hanging out to spend
Some time with us;...Read More

Little, lonely, ninety-year-old Grandnan,
From her rusty, cold, garden caravan,
sent grandchild a birthday cake!
Wishing after her he will not take,
Be lonely like Grandnan in Caravan!

Boyfriend :: The Seranilla

You are friend, not old,
neighbour's grandchild told.
let's go for a walk
we'll sit on that rock.

And you'll tell story,
not on king's glory.
You'll continue till
evening, and it's chill.

She had lot of plan;
Don't know how I can
keep on to please her

You sit as always-earphones in and eyes glued to a screen,
soon you will stand and leave, sometimes you say goodbye,
I watch you in your other world to which I do not belong.

I go to the freezer and select our tea,...Read More

Our family visited but they’re gone now…the house is empty
but it’s definitely not bare
for the memories they left behind are echoing everywhere.

their echoes and so much more

Premium Member Something Borrowed
My grandmother often advised
"no need to borrow trouble."

My grandmother-in-law warned
"you don't need to look for trouble
because it will find you,"
which seems a better fit
with my own experience
with actively soliciting trouble,

Disempowering investments
purchased at lowest ego-cost
for discounted risky value,
or borrowed,
when too broke...Read More

From the moment we became grandparents we have felt conflicted
at the way, in books and media, grandparents are depicted.

But we’ve been grandparents for a while now 
(one grandchild just graduated college)
So we believe it is time to share some grand-parental...Read More

Beautiful Boy
For CHarles Hall. Born 15.9.2017.

By just turning up
you've bought such joy,
My Grandson Charles
my beautiful boy,
The spark you bring
brightens the flame,
With humble pride
you carry my name.

In mountains of joy
and valleys of cares,
there will be love
and constant prayers,
There will be wisdom

In a tiny, rustic cabin
In the hills of Tennessee
Is where my weary mother
Bravely gave birth to me.

Is where I patiently waited,
‘Till someone married me.

There are giggles and there are guffaws.
Horse laughs are common at my house.
With the mouth dropped open as wide as a tomb
And crazy laughter that goes on forever.
Hiccups follow. When we laugh, we laugh.
Nothing prissy about this family.

If ignorance were bliss
And I had one wish.
I would unlearn all that I know.
I would play as a toddler
with my granddaughter,
and have fun as we go.
I would do as she does.
Growing like a weed,
Learn as she learns.
And before I’m through,

Drawn on Paper

The small house, mostly quiet.
No one up. 
No one to notice anything. 
Things just happened.

Lights sparkled…
from no where.
The soft sound,
of angel wings,
The ever so sweet smell,
of chocolate and peppermint, 
commingled with apple spice, 
permeates the very air.

Grandpa watches the clock on a wall
Grandson watches the same 
Holding grandpa’s hand

They count one two three
As the second hand moves

Grandpa mumbles
Time’s going too fast
No, grandpa

It’s going too slow


Our internal clock
Slows down 
As we age

You have hair like golden silk.

Grandpa knew everything, 
that was needed to be known, 

I stayed every summer, 
from the time before I remember, 
until the time I pray,
never to forget. 

We worked in the garden.
We dug holes, and planted seeds.

Years ago, when my kids were small,
We danced at night and had a ball 
When we were in our country house,
A custom we should all espouse.
