Christmas jelly

"we made it
she said
(as i took it from
the gift bag)
"mary and me"

sand plum

the sight of it
bringing back
a shaft of sunlight
through the window
of our farmhouse kitchen
those many years ago

and mom
in her apron

at the stove

*I'm not a jelly lover; even as a child, i never ate the jelly mom made. But the memories invoked by the sight of this jar were invaluable. Thanks ann.......and be assured that my husband and sons will definitely delight in the jelly!
