unto that element

 “When down her weedy trophies and herself

Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide;

And, mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up:

Which time she chanted snatches of old tunes;

As one incapable of her own distress,

Or like a creature native and indued

Unto that element: but long it could not be

Till that her garments, heavy with their drink,

Pull’d the poor wretch from her melodious lay

To muddy death.”

― William Shakespeare, Hamlet

chrisoula's top floor

from chrisoula's top floor
i see to the mountain's top
to the olive grove rows
across tiled rooftops
to the fields of sheep
across a misted sky
to orange dots crowding
backyard trees

blues and greens blend
into a wintery mix
feeding the worked soil
underfoot i feel the
shaken olive fruit
i hear a dog's call
as a filled truck-bed
bounces along the field road
back home

to grandmother

i hear a lot about grandmothers' hands
when i ask people to "tell me a food story..."
often we end up in conversation about
Grandmother

grandmother's hands 
moving across tables
brushing cheeks
wiping away tears
offering comfort

yiayia to me
nana, grandma, abuela, nonna to others
offering something to children
that we cannot quite put a finger on
but they hold so clearly in their hands
