Sunday Visits, a Haibun

By Dianne Moritz

My Gramma loved baking cookies. A favorite were Swedish rolls: balls of sugared dough, filled with pecans, and covered in confectioner’s sugar. These were often served on Sunday afternoons when the great-aunts and uncles drove in to visit us from their nearby Iowa farms.

Everyone gathered in the living room, but when they started speaking Swedish, I got annoyed.

Sunday afternoons
relatives visit
speaking Swedish
telling secrets
I never learned
