Great Grandma’s Legacy – A Poem


105Great Grandma’s Legacy

Amber glass glistens with memories

Twelve small bowls hugged like the children

Who tasted the fruity delights.

Colors change with spectral hues

Between the scalloped edges, free of chips.

Short stems gingerly washed through the generations

Like small sugary-sweet faces.

Thirteen bowls full of memories

Fit together like a pineapple puzzle

That nobody anticipates.


Written Rita Ackerman for The Call To Write Class, March 2008109
