Heather Matthews Hankie artwork 'Hexagons of Grief"


my grandmother stitched a quilt of tears

while grandfather lay dying

pale flowering hexagons of grief

barely pieced together

my grandfather the dashing soldier

was mentioned in dispatches

his long legs became thin as stamens

beneath a crimson dressing gown

his bayonet on top of the curtain pelmet

he never marched on Anzac Day.
