The following was submitted by Writers in the Grove member, Mary Jane Nordgren.
It was in response to the prompt, “A taste, a touch, or a smell from childhood“.
taste of childhood
grandma was a lady, precise, particular
her dining room table manner formal
but at her green-patterned, formica kitchen table
sis and I got to dig into root beer floats
and slurp every last quarter-inch of sweet-bubbled foam
