My go-for-it(!) Grandmother

Always adventurous

avidly searching the new

spiritually, humanely concerned

with the luminous instances of reality

 

how consistent 

her determinations about worthy tasks

and her energised openness to nature

and life

 

remembering our shared past

with her love, wit and bouts of exasperation

she wonderfully put us through

 

but above all

how she taught us

to maintain a lightness of heart

to ageing and sorrow

 

which she 'nut-shelled' perfectly

with the words-

"above all never ever weep on the worlds shoulder"
