“Banana Cream Dream” pie is a precursor to much more than a treat.
It is a marker of simpler times.
Not decadent or overly sweet.
It evokes memories made by hand.
It must be eaten in the week.
Bananas can be smooth and luxurious.
Power packed with energy.
Cream and shaved almonds are blended in its allure.
I’ve traded the richness of a cake for pie.
Marking my maturation and graduation.
From a birthday celebration all grown up.
After 41 years on this earth there is so much
More I want to know and I’ve cone to appreciate.
I think I’ll be satisfied with just one slice.
If I can share a bite with you,
It’s perfect really, extra nice .
