Picnics Like Poetry
Tuesday, July 19, 2011  7:12:00 AM

by Carol Dee Meeks



Poetry
This poem won
FIRST HONORABLE MENTION
at the 2011 ANNUAL PSO WORKSHOP CONTEST
in Oklahoma City


Under a haze in July days
we share our food with a family brood
who cooks cuisine on grills they clean
when skies are grey. They wear berets.


They sizzle meats, bake bread as treats,
serve salads jelled so good they yelled,
share relish dish and cocktail fish
with candied beets and trays of sweets.


The weather cools, leaves wadding pools.
As horseshoe games don winning names
spectators watch, prefer hopscotch,
then break the rules like carefree fools.

A picnic time is like a rhyme
assorted verse: some long, some terse.
The fellowship, the family trip,
the seasoned thyme, a savory climb.
