Unexpected The Moment

typed with black ribbon. on a 3 x 5 index card. (without blue lines). mom’s recipe. for homemade noodles. signed “Mom”. in black ink. we all have these, yes? how long ago was that? 40-45 years maybe? so that i could have a copy. because i asked. from college. (thus not, “Love Mom”—i might be embarrassed). making the noodles. on New Years Day. essentially egg noodles. i barely think. about mom. yet i know. she is close. the first bite however. and even now. in this moment. writing. i feel the liquid. in my eyes. rim full. i’d like to tell mom. about the noodles. more liquid. dropping. with memories. the taste. thank you mom—with love.
