Gratitude for Our Inherited Traits

Banana Split, Banana, Ice, Dessert, Suites, Sundae


Some things they say in a family runs

Great bakers, intuition, or having green thumbs

Be it mommy’s key lime or grandma’s hydrangeas,

or the mystical talent for just knowing strangers

But the best inheritance of all

Is being taught the good taste

To eat banana split ice cream

And filling our face




Paint Chip Poetry Prompt #27
