Combine

#Fowc #Combine

I. Baking

Take your favourite root vegetable

add it with some fat, flour, and a sugar for sweetness

put some additional berries or nuts

stir in, and stick in the oven

when ready – retrieve – cut up

and enjoy

II. Art

Trying to get the colour of

flowers in the garden

isn’t that hard

dropping some red with blue, or blue with yellow,

produces some lovely colour for those blackberries

you’re capturing in that pot

III. Chemistry

Creating new substances from items in the lab

has to be done with care

elements coming together in glass beakers

make colourful mixes , sometimes with

intense reactions –

so it makes sense to use a bit of forward planning

take care with those acids and alkalis and look out at

reactions – don’t forget your gloves and goggles

you’ll be grateful you wore them if the mixes turn violent

IV. Crops

pointing headwards in the sky

threshed and processed for the best yield

then sent to the mill to meet the stones

crushing them down for bread flour

or maybe even cornflakes
