A Poem For My Great Great Grandmother

Red Tomatoes in a Blue-rimmed White Basin

Gravel driveway
Two lane highway
Over the levee
Bridge across the Mississippi
Country roads
Into the cotton cove
Up the wood plank steps
Through the dilapidated doors
Ancient dress patterns on the walls
Red tomatoes in a blue-rimmed white basin
Love in its most simple, natural form

We miss you Mama
