Grandma Zula

Grandma Zula

A Poem by luciddreamer
"

I only got to spend one summer with my Great Grandmother ...she was a very mysterious and beautiful human being...and I am so grateful for that one summer of magic....

"

I miss her white beans and cornbread, as well as her

salt and pepper hair which flowed onto the floor, from her seat where

each and everynight, in her ritual of preparing for sleep,

she would release

to brush from the bun atop of her head

I miss her wisdom and magic,

although she never looked at it as magic, only

as a gift from the one whom she knew true

God

and not a gift to herself but to others,

 she always reminded me that she was only a messenger,

 she assured me we are all capable of doing wretched things

Her faith was impeccable,

 even the sins of the tv preacher she watched didn't waver her.."

people are people, we all sin" she would say

her commonsense was not common at all

this Cherokee American Indian

who had an African name

Wow how wonderful. I loved all of it!
"I miss her wisdom and magic" reminded me of my own Granny. It took me back nearly 40 years! Thank you so much.

She has been revived and is alive in all our minds today. And she is smiling at the spell you have cast.
