Memories worth keeping:
Gasps and cries from one sibling enduring the tickle torture of another, faces will not lose their grins easily;
Nearly dry laundry on a clothesline taking on water from a storm letting lose while the family plays inside;
All ideas for a hearty dinner laid to waste, culminating in a pot of rice for gossi:
Vanilla to flavor the fun,
butter to savor the moment;
Steep it and keep it until it cools,
then smother it in rich yogurt for lasting memories
and sweeten it with a touch of sugar which grows in the past.
These are the memories we will recall with joy.
