The Story Teller

The image shows an old lady sitting with a young boy in a rural setting. The boy has a laptop open and is showing her something.

I remember that day
my Ouma and me
perched on the bench
in the shade of her stoep
making up adventures
like we always did.

I remember that day
bright brown eyes
crinkling at the edges
her words, like whispers
captured by the keys
as I typed, my new laptop
balanced on my knees.

I remember that day
my Ouma and me
mind filled with light
eyes button-bright
sharing her final story
with me.

My Ouma has gone
but her stories live on
and now I am
the story teller.
