Small Forgotten Countries

My camisole stained from gathering tomatoes in the crisp sunshine. The citrus aroma of home made bubble solution and squeals of joy as my small boy blows bubbles with his Gramma. The swing of cotton pajamas around my ankles, and my bare feet grubby and cool in the grass. Red polish chipped away to reveal maps of small, forgotten countries on my toes.
