In the Last Hour

In the last hour
family gathers around the table
Two parents
Two daughters
Two son-in-laws
Two granddaughters
Aromas of yeasty rolls, garnet yams,
and broccoli linger
talking, laughter fill the room
I poise my camera
"Gamma, say cheese" says the two year old
runs
hides
in plain sight down the hall
An hour of love

What are garnet yams. Sounds like your "last hour" was very warm and connected.
