Vivian Kirkfield's #50Preciouswords 2021 - Honorable Mention

A Spring Memory

by Chris Garcia-Halenar

Not all days smile, but today is lucky.

The garden is full of Spring.

“Grandpa, I’m Victoria.”

They stop.

He is blank.

His fingers fill with fear.

She squeezes tighter.

“Can we also plant tulips?”

His eyes thank her.
