Pecan Memories

A walk in the orchards 

From times past

My grandma would gather us grands

Three, five, or seven of us in a row

Walking along to her favorite spot

Cool crisp air we can feel it

Leaves crunching under foot

A bag in each helpers hand

We are on a mission

Find those pecans

Mom and I took a walk today

In a place called Serenity

We felt an air of familiar

The leaves crunched under our feet

Bags in our hands

A mission we were on it

Find those pecans

And we did!

I could feel the spirit of grandma

Moving in us, walking with us

In our hands, were her hands

The beloved pecan

Brought back so many memories!
For my grandma, Ruth Anderson

For my momma, Marian A. Clay

A period tells you that is that. With a semicolon you get a pleasant little feeling of expectancy ; there is more to come; read on; it will get clearer.
