grandmother

My computer has been misbehaving lately, which is why I've been inactive for a while. It seems to be almost normal at the moment, so I'll seize the opportunity to post this, which was submitted to the Caribbean Kigo Kukai, May 2012

spring begins
my grandmother's first look
at my son

He was the 25th great grandchild she lived to see. This is obviously a memory-ku. He's 47 now.
