Traditional English Lavender-bottles – a new poem

Lavender bottles

Deft fingers pull the purple lavender

into neat bundles,

soft satin ribbons

wander through the stems

   tame unruly stalks.

He ties memories into a bow

hands them to me,

with a smile.

How come he could recall

every move his Grandmother’s hands

had made and finally the

the lavender bottle is complete.
