The seal popped

The jar opened

The flavours released

sweetened fruit held in suspension

spread over hot buttered toast

sensations – smell sight and taste – heightened

Warm strawberry tastes

Wild , sweet and welcoming

Tasted with every bite

The rest of the flavours – locked in the jar

kept in a place with the polar bears

for tomorrows crumpet feast

Perpetually found in a christmas pudding

luscious fruit sweet, with a stone in the middle

usually found in a jar in a jam or

made into a sauce and served with Dim Sum

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

Ponder

#Fowc #Ponder

Cupcakes on a tray , Painter Art by Inky

You’ve been stood by the cafe counter

for over ten minutes

the teapot you ordered will have to be rewarmed

as you ponder over your latest quandry

Lemon, Raspberry, Blueberry or Vanilla ?

don’t hang about – have all four!!!

Pink sherbet

#CYW #Pinksherbet

Someone should really have told you

how zingy that pudding really is

every day you headed for the ice cream cart

rounding on this raspberry combo

but your face – after the initial taste of the raspberries

engaged into full on scrunch mode as your

tongue took on the individual taste

Jazzy Doughnuts

A picture of two jelly donuts where one is cutted in half, showing jelly

Just look at it

a taste sensation

zesty and fruity fruit

zipped up in a sweet pastry pillow

best eaten after tea – but can be

eaten, scoffed or wolfed down at any time of day

rich red fruit at its centre

really nice with a warm cup of tea

yet you can also have it for a dessert!

Last tin on the shelf

#metaphor

a piece wrote as a response to a photo….gave it a little character.

Last tin on the shelf….Opened (Image : B.F.Kirkham)

Down a vast array of items
in the great festive sale
sits a lowly tin of peaches

bashed from the morning jostle
its label a little worn
it sits on the shelf – alone

this tin was never – ever
going to win the contest
for most delightful

its fellow tins were taken
some hours ago
in the rush before closing

and there’s no one to see
but the Frosty sour cream
in the Fridge in Aisle C

Moments tin wishes
he was back in the plant
opportunities here – scant

So the tin waits
for morning to come
and awaits delivery mans hum

Peach

#CYW #Peach

Autumn Red Peaches (Image by B.F Kirkham)

Picked from the trees in the hills of Asia

each fruit furry to the touch

and juicy with every bite – just watch out for the stone in the middle

can be eaten on its own, or with custard or cream

hot out of the oven – its wonderful in a pie or a flan

Sizzling Space Burger

Fancy a burger on the edge of space?

#CYW #Outerspace

ever wandered why the aliens keep on landing on earth ?

seems there’s something special here you just cant get

tween Jupiter and Saturn on their burger buns

space dust from the crab nebula and

particles of planet dust doesn’t quite match

the taste you get from the special sauce on a terran burger

or a “fillet of fish”

maybe that’s why they keep making so many return visits!

By the Hundreds

#SocS #Bythehundreds #Sweet

Hundreds and Thousands : Stock Photo from Dissolve

Held in a container and kept

Up on the same shelf as the glace cherries

Numerous sweet strands wait for the

Day they decend on the fairy cakes

Rainbow Rebellion? no…more like decoration

Each one looking forward to the

Decadent day they add a spot of colour to the

Sweet icing they land on
