Great poem. I love it. Just one word I think needs to be changed. "Passed" to "Past".

soul mates

Random thoughts on a summer's weekend backyard barbecue.


The cascading of scarlet flesh;
Searing beneath the blazing sunlight;
From a summer's cloudless sky;


Sprite revealing summer garb,
See through tops and skimpy shorts,
Trend-set the shameless eye-candy


An impromptu weekend barbecue;
Quaffed alcohol, gluttonous gouging, burping;    
Discarded paper plates on a messy littered lawn


Sugar-hyped little savages roughhouse
Muddy torn apparel; skinned knees, elbows
Wipe the tear and kiss the nasty boo-boo.


Ice rattling in gin and tonics,
Memoirs of past transgressions, tempers fray;
Spelling the start of another inane family feud 2 comments
