Carry On

TitleCollageHaiku

Mom’s recipe box

Filled with family traditions

Enjoyed once a year

There’s her pumpkin bread

Cinnamon, raisins and cloves

Make it taste so good

Anise cookies, yum

Santas, bells, stars and camels

Frosted and sugared

Make enough for friends

We’ll need lots of hopscotches

They’re the first to go

And if there is time

Make fudge and English Toffee

Fill the cookie tray

Aprons, rolling pins

Laughter, music, heart-felt grins

Wrap up gifting tins

Every single year

Keeping traditions alive

She’s here in spirit

and so it is

Many memories

Create the stars in the sky

We stay connected

They wink and we wave

As if to say, “I see you”

And so we believe

We are not alone

As long as we see the glow

Of love around us

Thank you bright sky blue

For distracting us all day

You have earned your stars

Evening calls places

As trees become sky’s curtain

Day’s cast takes a bow

Nature’s costume change

Preparation for act two

The stars aim their lights

This play’s final scene

Leaves the audience wanting

Coming attractions
