Grandmother

Beneath the protection of the verdant,
Elevated mango trees,
There I lay upon the bare ground,
Next to my aging grandmother.
With a basket she wove herself; she sat there,
Separating crimson beans from the ones that were rancid.
Every day, coming closer to meet a paradise
More beautiful than the land she prevailed in,
Though never did she fade in hue.
