A Granddaughter's Smile


A granddaughter’s smile incites advantage
as she readies her nest for the nighttime story
she prepares each slice of magnetic universe
she tends to bottle warming and gifts;
the boys punctuate the fields with balls
that impress upon blankets of trampoline gravity
a vertical hope singing their holiday songs
plucking the strings of their bows
sailing their ships from universe to universe;
grandparent bliss eclipses
the last canvas of vision arranging the vibrations
into the pictures in all of our dreams.
