To My Grandmother
Ana Santos Ordóñez

in memoriam

Del Azahar era el Valle, 2003
Colección Auroras Boreales, #2
Asociación de Mujeres Amatista, Coín, Málaga



The driving force of her immense house
Grande dame of her boundless love
Sincere feet of her firm life
Firmament of her loyal legion

Philadelphus crown her patio
Philodendrons recite her love
Aspidistras crown her scepter
Hydrangeas ring in unison

Light of wheat kneaded her hands
A housewife without equal
Harmony reigned in her farmhouse
Instilling honor in her offsprings

Orange blossoms crowned her fields
Jasmines, her walkway
Wallflowers perfume the boundaries
Roses and narcissus, her will

Silhouette of moon
Guardian angel
Heart of the sun
May her lyre sound forever
In the firmament of my heart

Woman of jet black eyes and hair
Mother of coral
Sister of enamel
Grandmother of salt
Her essence branded in my solitude
