Poetry Friday: Strands of Glass

Strands of Glass in Great Grandmother's Kitchen

Her bunioned feet and my tip tapping toes
slip through dusts of flour
sifting down, down, down on cool tiles.
Sunlight pauses
in beaded glass
click, click, clacking the window panes.
Colors spill
over our gingerbread men
laugh, laugh, laughing in our hands.
