With A Shake Of The Head

My granddaughter Sami says

she hasn’t given up hope

that I might become

more like the grandmothers

she’s read about in books,

seen in movies and on tv.

She hasn’t given up hope

that I’ll put away

my swear words coloring book,

 don a flowered apron,

and make batches of cookies

as uplifting music softly plays.
