The purple-taupe color of the garlic clove skin.
Green fresh smells of early mornings, sunny in the in-between of summer and fall.
Box fans that blow air in the heavy heat of late afternoon.
Fresh bread filling the house with floury homeyness.
Creamy vanilla lotion on cracked work worn hands.
The sparkling iridescence of pool water inviting a big splash in the early evening after school.
Lentil soup with garden fresh veggies and thick slices of homemade bread.
Anticipation of a loved-one’s return, the comfort of strong arms and chest, the warmth of hugs and tenderness of kisses and joy-filled laughter of children jostling for their turn.
