The Colors of Grandma

Image

She purses her lips and slides on the color,

Coral, her signature.

She fastens her necklace and touches it gently,

Silver, to remember Steve.

She coats her lashes and blinks her kind eyes,

Blue, like her father’s.

She powders her cheekbones and dabs on her blush,

Pink, her personality.

She sits with coffee as the sun breaks the sky,

Gold, her heart.
