With my Grandma

A simple conversation

though, with you it is so much more

drawing circles with our words

jumping through hoops just to understand their meaning

You've spent years watching me grow

yet my simplest accomplishments still astound you

An A? Yes!

Applied to college? Wonderful!

I remember when..., you tell me

and we laugh together

though I don't remember the events you recall

and know I never will

It's a funny thing talking to your grandma

the clash of different times and places

the internet user and one who's never read an email

our differences are immense, large and seemingly impassable

But we overcome them.

We always have.
