Grandma Ruth
By Michelle Turchetto

yet, serious
Like water lapping the beach

Black and white pictures
from long ago
She was into playing cribbage and golf

Enjoyed talking
Walking along the fence line
of the Farm
Never ending

Taught me herself
the game of cribbage
Watched over me
with all of the rest
of her family

Was against our unintentional rudeness
But loved her family
with much fondness
all the same

Brown eyes
Grey hair
And for all of this
I am grateful
