June 2009 – Beer & Barbecue

Raise your glasses now
Not to the host but the roast
A toast to the cow!
~HC

Burgers stand ready
Dogs and steaks, check; charcoal primed
Forgot the matches
~Jerry

The fire is high
The steaks are burned to a crisp
No problem–there’s beer
~Lance Strate

empty paper plate
except for the smear of char
and barbeque sauce
~poetman

angry mother glares
at two speedy hungry flies
no, just one fly now
~poetman

Malty hops bubble
Darkly down the throat, mixing
With rich, iron-red blood.
~enigmatic knight

what is that I smell?
breakfast was too long ago
when will it be done?
~quirks

nearby honey bees
in the almost-summer-sun
tea steaps with lemons
~poetman
