Celia K. – My grandmother aka “Mother”

I danced on tiptoes
a small girl child
in the cool
forest
of your green velvet
white silk sanctuary

My movie
star Mother
with the
Barbara Stanwyck
smile

My movie star
Mother with
veiled feathered hats
and finger waves
curving against
Ivory Soap
porcelain skin

Elegant in navy
sheaths
mink
silk stockings
and high
heeled pumps
Singing in her clear
contralto of
butterflies, bluebirds


and "pretty bubbles"
in the air

And now like
soap bubbles
and celluloid

My elegant Mother
vanished
shimmering
off into a prism
of rainbow
light

forever
sparkling
like
a sweet
dream
of a clear
song
recalling the
past
preserving the
future......
With laughter
With elegance
With love.......
