Family Reunions (posted to Facebook on 7/7/08)

I love them so,
with the egg & spoon races
(grass stains all over),
the air thick with the smell of
barbeque ribs on the grills
and heavy with the shouts of the young'uns;
the old ladies (cackling with laughter)
the girls (singing, dancing).
Grandpa (telling about'When I was your age')
And the young boys around him
soaking it all in (or nodding off).
Then Cousin Junebug strolls up
In the bright red suit
and the smile showing bright white teeth.
As I watch the action, I must ask
With wide-opened eyes:
Mom, who are these people?
