This is a third draft extracted from a longer exercise called Where I’m From. This started as the verse about a significant person in your life.
I am from Mina
and days out with Degas,
Kandinsky, the Summer show.
Her cultural confidence
On the threshold of Tate Modern
A single visit in her lifetime.
We spanned centuries together.
Those art spaces,
she just marched in.
My tiny Grannie, undiminished.
With thanks to Be Manzini who’s Write On course the Where I’m From exercise was part of.
