Final Mindful Writing 31 - Grandparents

In their wedding best
they stand for the photo,
before the brown brickwork
of some wall. They are quite
dwarfed by the photo frame,
pear, peach, apple
pomegranate twined and full.
I close my eyes like my grandfather
in photographs; beneath the
dust I see my grandmother's eyes
shut, too.
