Fairies

Fairies rising (Image by Inky)

What’s that coming out of my cup of chai ?

colorful things rise and fly

up and down and round about

following the trail of the steam spout

far into the air they fly and rise

like colourful luminous butterflies

captured by the camera’s eye

before out of the kitchen they do fly

In the Fridge

A tale of an ice cube in Summer, by Inky

An ice cube took a holiday

from the freezer he was in

took a trip to warmer times

enjoying with a grin

He sat on a place by some fruit

just by the processed meat

and began to drip on his saucer

staying together – a bit of a feat

Avoiding the butter and onions

he waited in his pool

dripping away in the fridge

while others thought it cool

but then oh what a great big show,

as into a jug he did go

joining the fruit and ice cubes in the pool

keeping the humans lovely and cool

Mystics Brew

an acrostic tale by inky, taken out of his repository at allpoetry.com

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Peering into the deep china cup
each white wisp formed a cloud in the liquid
rolling around before rising in the air
chances were our drinker could
envisage the future from her brew
peering at the bottom of her
tannin stained tea receptacle
if you were expecting coffee
our mystic would say you would be wrong
no real mystic could read the mud from a coffee.

Can

Salford, 14th November 2019

#fowc #can

The subject of the piece : A Can


Container – made of

Aluminium – containing something

Nice, Fruity and Fizzy

Cornucopia of flavours held back by

A steel ring pull

Now Chillin’ in a cool space

Could be a surprise upon opening

A release of the fizz under pressure

Nobody knowing what happens next – take cover!

Zingy little fruit,

full of zest and flavor

and powerful punch

 

perfect , placed in a jelly

sparky flavours contained in

a porcelain mould

 

Sparks of delight

pop off on the tongue

and your luminosity

 

Green for go ! your sign

the party power switches

are all turned on

Mango Tango

Maybe it was love at first sight

As the juice bar music 🎶 played on

A mango entered into a dance 💃

with a fruity little thing

a distant cousin of the orange 🍊

A whirlwind romance

creating something colourful fresh and zesty

in mister baristas mixing machine

Percolate

Percolate
Born in the Sun

Saved from Birds – Red Blue and Yellow

The humble little coffee bean

is a hardy fellow

 

Grown in the warmth

of a plantation

with 50,000,000

brothers and sisters

 

picked from its parent

it travels for miles

travelling in bags

with no room to smile

 

asked to improve

the heated aqua

and roasted within

an inch of its life

 

Life force captured

in three sizes of cup

and then the final insult

the drop of milk and sugar

Taking a biscuit for a paddle

cup-of-hot-chocolate

When the weather is particularly choppy,  I like to sit down in a nice comfy chair and enjoy a biscuit with a cup of hot chocolate.  It reminds me a little of my youth, when I used to enjoy a cup with my little sister before bedtime.  We still share the same enjoyment of the tasty warm cocoa drink, but now we share it with family and friends,  in particular … my two nephews who like it as a treat just before their nanna and granddad tuck them into bed when they are visiting

The hot chocolate shop has many different flavours to go at.  In the beginning, I’d go for the standard, no messing about, hot chocolate..70% Cocoa – Deep Chocolate Flavour.  It would last me for two to three months, due to the size of the tin it was in.  But since then, I’ve been introduced to a smorgasbord of chocolate flavours, everything from cherry to Rocky road (it’s got marshmallows in it) and orange to mint…most recently the creme brulee has had an outing…and I’ve really enjoyed it’s flavours of vanilla and caramel…when the nephews are coming round they like this too…but they also like the minted chocolate…that’s their favourite

Of course I sometimes enjoy a biscuit with my cocoa.  So if I’m in the mood i will get a bag of cookies from the local supermarket…just as good as the ones you get from the coffee establishments…but cheap as chips if you happen to be passing the bakery section at just the right moment….at the moment I like the coconut based cookies…really soft and squishy…but lovely in a cup of orangey chocolate.

When I’m out with friends we often hit a particular well known cafe,  the flavours might be limited but the number of flavoured syrups you can add more than makes up for it…it’s the place where I was introduced to minted hot chocolate, and I suppose you could say I got my love of the dark brown liquid gold.

Well, that’s enough from me,  I’m going to get an early night , Taking a leaf from my Memory Workshop class which awaits in tomorrow afternoon…but before I do,

I’m going to take a biscuit for a paddle…
