"Barbecue may not be the road to world peace, but it's a start."
The "Blogging Circle of Friends " prompt for DAY 2018:
Write about a Barbeque or Barbecue. Both spellings are used, so use the one you like best. Write a story, memory, or poem. If you have a recipe you can share use that.
Memories of Memorial Day weekends
across the decades of my childhood,
They are videos
playing through my mind,
both smiles and tears.
In my younger years,
Grandpa drove us
through parts of southern Kansas,
and western Missouri
crape paper flowers
on the graves of family veterans.
As he grew older,
the Memorial Day weekend drives
and we went to The Lake--
our name for the recreational area--
where my grandparents had
a mobile home
on a rented lot.
At The Lake
those who had passed on.
