Grandma’s Kitchen

Fresh butter cookies
Just imagine their sweet scent
Warm from the oven

Lost memories of grandma
Were brought back with her kind smile

Ronovanwrites 85th Haiku Challenge

The challenge words this week were tight and warm.

When I was young we would come to town and drive to Aunt Rosie’s Home.

When we would stop and go in, it was always neat as a pin with hot tea and white lemon cookies displayed on the table. I’d always heard it was a spinster’s house, but all I really knew was the kind woman who lived there always made sure I ate till I was full.

In The Spinster’s House

glass covered pictures
held tight to the parlor walls
kept reflections warm

beside a polished table
sat hot water for her tea
