Gray whisps highlighted her silver hair
Laugh lines made her frown smile
Her leathery, paper-thin skin seemed fragile
“Oh Bella, put on a jacket, it’s cold outside. You’ll freeze.”
She fussed as she delicately tied a bright scarf around her head
Knowing she wouldn’t let it go until I obeyed
I gently took my jacket off the antique coat rack and put it on
“Phin, hurry up, dear. Do you need help tying your shoes?”
As she ignored his attempt to deny the question,
She hurried over to my brother
Grandmother slowly made her turtle-like journey outside
No driving anywhere, no calling anyone, just throwing a Styrofoam ball
Back and forth and back and forth
But, I had fun
Because I was with my Grandma
