My Grandma

Posted March 23, 2009 & filed under Notebook.

My grandma loves strawberries.
My grandma is a very old woman.

She wears long dresses.
She is a really old girl, the way

she eats strawberries in a really juicy way.
She licks her lips after she is done.

She keeps strawberries in a ziplock bag
so she can give the juicy ones to her family.

We get it all over us. And at night
she brushes her hair in a brown wavy way.

Great Gramamá

Posted May 10, 2007 & filed under Notebook.

I dream with open
eyes of my Gramamá
at night and evening.
I feel she is hugging
me. It seems she is gone.
She is and I see her
night and day in
the mirror
where she brushed
her hair and put
makeup on. I like
the way she did that.
Her bed still
smells like vinegar.
I like that smell,
so pretty. I’ll always
love her.
