TRY THE TEST





TITLE: Where did Grandpa go?

I am trying to sort a style that to me seems not quite poetry and not quite something else. I'm new at this. Your critique appreciated. Thanks

Where did grandpa go?

Where did grandpa go?
Such an innocent question.
My heart wretches within me.
GONE! I think!
GONE!
Tears form like stinging nettles in my eyes. But she is looking at me with the look I have seen so many times in this past few months.
At three the explanation is hard.
What will she understand?
How can she comprehend?
I open my mouth to speak, the words don’t come. And then I hear.
“Heaven Grandma,
Grandpa went to heaven . . . with Jesus!”
She is excited
to tell me the answer she now remembers
as she runs to my lap.
“See my new dolly” she says,
content now to return to the here and now!
My heart sees him smile.
“That’s my granddaughter” he says to Jesus.
“I know” He hears in response.

“ Your new dolly is perfectly beautiful” I say.
