  • Hold out a handful of dirt and watch it fall - Everything2.com
    at my hands and then show me hers We have the same hands you and I She showed me the clump of roots and earth in her fingers then crumbled the dirt gently away from them revealing clean strong roots My hands have always loved the feel of dirt She turned the dirt in her fingers I held my hands underneath to catch it in handfuls then let it drop I smiled back up at her with blissful ignorance of her meaning I just loved her I never sensed anything deeper My grandmother wasn t a tall woman I used to joke to myself that she was as wide as she was tall But she was one of the most loving women I ve even known She d gone through many years of being practically a baby factory for a bastard husband she loved raised eleven children and managed to make each of her 27 grandchildren feel that each one was her favorite I always felt like her favorite She died in May the year I turned twenty five I went to the funeral and sat with my huge family as we held each other and remembered our collective centerpiece The graveside service was on a hillside of our family cemetery They buried her next to my cousin Aaron who died of leukemia We stood in the bright sunshine and listened to the minister speak of her in terms of mother and grandmother terms we all understood and knew to be beautifully true She had never aspired to be anything more than what she was because all of us were enough to keep her sane and blissfully happy Afterwards we went back to her home ate fresh baked ham chips drank sweet tea and talked loudly as my family is prone to do I walked outside to be alone It was strange to be in that place during that time of the year It was warm but windy and my black tie flapped at my neck I went to the dead trees The wisteria was mammoth a beast The leaves spread out in the wind to absorb the warm sun The tentacles from the base wrapped tight over the entire structure and the boughs were filled overflowing with flowers They looked like blossomed grapes heavy and purple The air was laden with scent full and strong in my face I moved forward and saw that there was no opening in the trees nothing but green and purple everywhere I stood for a long time trying to find some way to see those trees as dead but I realized they were completely alive now transformed by the same thing that had probably killed them years before I was in awe of them they were alive I walked forward and found a long sprig that had recovered from last years pruning a hundredfold then broke off one end as well as I could and then pulled it carefully from the ground The
