A favorite family recipe lay on the table. My son was moved to write this poem.

 

 

An old recipe, nothing to some,

So much more to me.

Millions of meals, disasterous or delicious.

Caked onto a ragged and torn piece of paper. 

Stained multicolors of brown and yellow.

This old useless and worn paper says so much more to me

Than how many eggs go into noodles. 

It shows me a hundred happy birthdays, a wedding

and the love of a devoted mother.

A beautiful poem that immediately brings to mind memories of old, stained, and much-used recipes. I love the insight that made this recipe a cause for reflecting on the love behind the many meals that have been served.
Way to go, Carol's son!

Hugs,
Connie

Perfect-not a word out of place, not an unnecessary one, either. Well-written, indeed.

Excellent story of how a seemingly very ordinary or mundane thing is anything but.

Oh those memories, they do have a way of stacking up, don't they...

Be always safe,
Karen

Carol,

It's the little things that bring back pleasant memories. Great poem.

Mary
