This is a wonderful image to accompany your charming poem. I can only wish that in the future my little grandsons will miss me and think of me. A nicely penned free verse about Grandma Cook. Marilyn

Very nice write Dean. A write of remembrance and sentimentality. I am sure there would be many hidden memories and treasures in that attic.
you could spend hours reminiscing each time you pick up a trinket a vase a letter they will always bring back grandma's memories I am sure

I open a Time Capsule myself every once in a while Dean of Hand Written Letters My Grandmother wrote to me that spanned twenty some odd years.
Beautiful Memories for those of us who can still Touch and Feel the Spirit of Someone so very special in our lives.
A Beautiful Writing with a Memorable Image.
Very well done Dean...Q.T...Phil.

This is beautiful, Dean. I love it
much more than horror...and the sensory words are magnificent although strangely
mawkish..gotcha.
Truly...one of your best....
at least in my eyes..but then I
am just one radical free-verse freak.

Dear Dean, this is beautiful. The artwork looks like a real photo from your own album. The poem about memories of a beloved grandmother evokes similar recollections for me of my own dear Grandma Ruth who died when I was ten. Her belongings were ransacked after she died, but I found a pair of her lisle stockings in the laundry and a tin holding a scraping of her Three Flowers Talc. I hid them both and treasured them. Eventually they were discovered and shown to my mother who confiscated them smartly. I never told them they were mine or what they meant to me. It was my secret. Mine and Grandma's and now you know too. But you won't tell, will you? Love you poem Bro, thanks for sharing. Grandmas are special people aren't they? cheers Cass

This definitely seems to be about one of those places that brought out lots of thoughts and feelings, whisking you away to another place in time. Great job. :-)

Lovely. A beautiful tribute to your grandmother. I can see you have wonderful memories of her. In that way, she will always be with you.

What lovely words, and the presentation was all anyone could hope to do.

    Well, I'm no expert at writing free verse as I am more of a rhyming poet.
    But, I did my best, and it was from the heart, so...
    Thank you very much for taking the time to read and comment on this, Yvonne.

Dean, I should have read your free verse poem before writing mine! After two bad reviews on it I think I won't try that one again. This makes me think of an attic with all the things you wrote about. I am sorry about your grandmother even if it has been long we still miss them! have a blessed evening! Teri

Unless you upset the scenes, the memories last as long as the brain they are in.
I don't know free verse from eloquent prose. This was an excellent read.

    Thanks for reading, Red.
    There really isn't that much difference. Not unless a little rhyming is thrown into the mix.
    I chose not to.
    Have a nice evening.
