Saying Grace For Summers Past

The heat that rose through
the black, caked frame of
the barbeque grill so many
summers ago did not care
if it seared the meat of you
and me - it was just happy
to be free.  And if the scent
of us did not travel with it far
it still rose above the eaves,
intermingled with the trees,
and for a brief moment ran
toward the best of all worlds.
