Some time ago, here, the turmeric, known
as saffron in Grenada, flowered and before long,
was ready to harvest.
Six plants bore a bounty of succulent fingers
The fingers were 'chipped', sliced thinly, and left
There is a very happy woman in 'The Spice Isle",
who, thanks to her wonderful neighbour,
for showing her how,
and to Pa for giving her her own grinder,
(made in the Czech Republic, )
for her birthday next week,
two jars full of hard work, sunshine, happiness and health.
