The G’s

We try to picture great grandmother.
We did not know who our g.g.m. was

But would dream her in  holy thread
On  shirtless chest, a lump in throat.

Our sacred thread runs  left to right ,
And is reversed on chest right to left

And we have placed three rice balls
On a banana leaf with sesame seeds

For g.g.m,, g.m. and m. in that order.
As lineage grows , g’s go from them.
