Beautifully written. I just loved the line:"hearts and stomachs purr." Everyone should have such a grandmother!
love it - that coffee cake sounds delicious, and everything else too, invites me inyou have a wonderful way with words
There should have been a hunger alert with this, Brenda! Cake, coffee and compassion with Gran. What more could one need?!
Interesting how we entwine love, food & grandmothers. Nice poeticblend.
Impressed most by 3rd stanza, well written.
Mary, Thank you for your comment, I agree. A grandmother like this is something to aspire to be one day. :) gospelwriter, Thanks for your kindness.Derrick, You managed to make me chuckle again. Thanks. Marian, I notice many of us brought food & grandma, too. I'm loving the pieces this week.Gordon, Thanks for your comment. My favorite's the 2nd stanza. It's always interesting to see other perspectives.
To many delectables lines!in a roomful of plates
What evocative use of words Brenda. Love these lines:'She unbolts my floodgates to decontaminate discontent; she verifies my life.'
A beautiful affirmation of a grandmother's affirmative effect. I like the way the scene unfolds in the aura of the prompt photo without ever recapitulating it. I love the phrase "Grandmother's smooth water soul."
Your grandmother reminds me of my grandmother. Loved the way you evoked her spirit through the food and through her bearing. Wonderfully crafted images.
What a delightful grandmother you have! How nice that she inspired you to enjoy yourself! Poignant and brilliant! Love it!
Brenda this is so beautiful!`hearts and stomachs purr`how lovelyPamela
I do love the smell of cardamon.
Grandmothers are special This poem is so affirmative of that. Thanks Brenda.
well done Brenda with lots of good lines...nice photo of downtown Montana too
A marvellous vision, bringing wafts of that delicious cake as it bakes. My favourite line: 'decontaminate discontent' We should all have a go at that.
