Golden grape tomatoes
sliced upon a board
(jewels plucked from the vine).
Added to a Jiffy mix,
making *jazzed up corn muffins--
sweet and tender and oh so fine!
Brings back memories of cooking with my Mom
while sitting on a kitchen stool real high.
I miss her ham and soup beans
served with hot, buttered corn bread.
Eaten with a smile and a satisfied sigh.
Max, my constant companion, watches me when I am in the kitchen.
He is at the ready in case anything falls to the floor!
*I used golden grape tomatoes instead of red cherry tomatoes.
I also left out the jalapeno pepper.
