Happiness Is Made Of This

Not so long ago,

I held my newborn grandson

in my arms. Last night,

now grown, he celebrated 

his birthday with us,

and before leaving,

he reached out and with a smile

he held me.


Keeping Up

Out here in the country,

it’s all I can do

to keep up with Knox

and the squirrels.

I don’t have time 

for the Joneses.


Dining Pleasure

Dinner with grandson –

a veritable feast

of historical fact, fiction

 and stories galore,

excitedly presented,

leaving me hungry for more.
