Milkshake

Salford, 24th October 2020

#Socs #Milkshake

Maybe its the

illuminating colours i

like about them, but i

keep returning to the coffee shop

slurping them down and

having a marvellous time

allying icecream, banana, and the freshest milk

kept cold in an ice cold frosty refridgerator

enjoyable on any seasonal day

Cordial

#Fowc #Cordial

Crafted from the finest grapes, raspberries and blackcurrants

Out of the copper kettle it came

Reinforced with herbs and spices , not forgetting the sugar

Drank in a ceramic mug

It’s something to be enjoyed either hot or cold, but

As its Autumn, and Winter is around the corner

Likelihood is you’ll be warming your fingers around the mug holding it

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

#Napowrimo #Inthefridge

Salford. 8th April 2020

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.

Press

Part – time juicer of oranges

Reels out stories and photos for

England’s tabloid press – so he can

Serve up iced drinks to the masses on

Summer weekends

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!

Electric lime

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

#coloryourworld #cyw #mangotango

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
