    I Still Remember


    I still remember her hands,
    Cracking pecans at the kitchen table,
    Stirring the filling of her millionaire pies,
    Stuffing her turkey with onions and spice,
    Pouring her coffee in a saucer to drink,
    Washing dishes at the kitchen sink,
    Pulling my cheek in for a kiss,
    Holding me close because she was proud,
    Rubbing,
    Cooking,
    Caressing,
    Scolding,
    Swatting,
    Folding,
    Nurturing,
    Touching,
    Loving,
    I still remember her hands.
