The Living Photograph(form 4)
My small grandmother is tall there,
straight-back,white broderie anglaise shirt,
pleated skirt,flat shoes,grey bun,
a kind,old smile round her eyes.
Her big hand holds mine,
white hand in black hand.
Her sharp blue eyes look her own death in the eye.
It was true after all that look.
My tall grandmother became small.
Her back round and hunched.
Her soup forgo to boil.
She went to the awful place grandmothers go.
Somewhere unkonwn,unthinkable.
But there she is still,
in the photo with me at three,
the crinkled smile is still living ,breathing.
Jackie Kay

1. The grandmother in the photograph was still healthy and strong. It was the grandmother that the persona remembered as neatly-dressed and full of life. Therefore, even though the grandmother is short, her confidence and life made her look tall.
2. The persona feels that the grandmother is kind, protective (holding the persona's hands) and full of life (looks death in the eye).
3. The grandmother has passed away, and it is unthinkable that a loved one has gone and will never come back. It is an awful feeling that the persona cannot be with the grandmother any more.
4. The photograph captures the grandmother at a state of health. It is a reminder to the persona that the grandmother was once alive and that thought comforts the persona. Hence, the photograph helps the persona feel that the grandmother is still living and breathing.
5. The photograph is a source of comfort to the persona in loving memory of the grandmother.
