my mother’s recipes
what’s missing
and what’s gone

    This resonates with me as my mother was famous city-wide for two recipes that she supplied to the restaurant family business, and for other recipes.

    My mother is now 92, and with gangrene that is spreading, so your haiku poem is so much more poignant for me.

    with much gratitude,

    Simply and eloquently expressed. Thank you. My mother liked to cook and though she tried to teach me, I didn't want to go there until much later, when I understood the importance of good nutrition and appetizing meals. I still make her recipes and have some of her cookbooks and they mean the world to me. Wonderful poem. Thanks again!

    Oh, this is beautiful, Seanan! The finality of 'what's gone' resounds long after reading…
