Her timeless memory

Survived her consumption

By the grace of a moment

Caught on film

While with her husband

Her arms thrown easily

Around his shoulders

His face a Mona Lisa of

Mirth, or embarrassment

Her confidence glowing

Through a visage shared with my aunts

Daring time to forget her

Ever as fashionable

As her teacups

Still held high in my home

Filigreed with warmth and colour
