Little Ghost II

Ghost

Good Gravy!  It’s cold – said the wolf to his chums

Home’s where we should be, where its not so glum – So

Over to the old haunted house they to go as their

Shivering and eerie forms they glow

Tonight they’ll meet up with their friend for some tea

(and fly around the top of the house for free)

Structure

 

Structure 

Saturday afternoon tea

toasted tea cakes have to be done just so or

right royal rumpuses will take place

up on the fine China service

choice bites of savoury stuff are

taken from the porcelain platters

unless you’re of a certain age…as

raspberry fancies meet a swift but happy end.

every wonder served on a tiered plate…lovely and tasty.

Garden Apple Pie

 

A San-San By Brian F Kirkham (Inky)

 

The branches against the household wall

holds fruit that’s ripening for a pie

blackberry stems bring fruit with flavour this season

that answers to the pastries call

over with envy the birds do fly

could this be why it cooks with haste ?

depriving the feathered hunters a reason

to head for the window to grab a taste

Marzipanveg.jpg

Give your love a sweet Valentine invitation

on a piece of rice paper parchment

send it with hand picked roses

made from flavoured marzipan

and those vegetables she doesn’t like on her salad

will taste o so much sweeter when she finds they’re strawberries

Portion

A Meagre Portion 🙂

Perhaps its time to watch the waistline

On the whole, its a terrible shame

Rounding on the pounds, in the way that you do

Today should be a celebration –

Its your Birthday!

Of course you can enjoy your birthday tea

Now – One Slice or Two ?

Trace of a strawberry

Salford, 31st May 2017

Trace

 

The cheesecake didn’t last that long

its remnants lying on the bottom of the crystal glass tray

shortcake digestive and chocolate crumbs

combine with the faintest of pink swirls

created as the strawberry sauce

dripped down onto the glass

Bitter

Salford 8th May 2017

An acrostic by Brian f Kirkham in response to the prompt Bitter

Biting into an unsweetened cocoa bean

Is an experience left best to the professional

Tasting it – is hard to describe

The flavour is there – but there’s no sweetness to it

Even the growers prefer it roasted and served in a cup with sugar

Rounded flavour – No – wait till they’ve gone to the chocolate factory

Lined up in rows alongside Vanilla

Coconut – a favourite

cubes of sweetness

transported to the tongue

heading for hips

Cerise

Cake with Cerise Roses – Sourced in Bing, Edited by BFK.

Chosen for its vibrant pinks

each rose, beautifully set against white royal icing

red in some ways, more deep pink in others

it’s vibrancy happily cheers “Hello!”

some might say cherries might have been a better decoration, but

everyone agrees – its perfect for a mothers day tea.

Almond

#cyw #Almond #coloryourworld

Admittedly, I like Almonds….

Like – when they’re scattered liberally over a bakewell sponge or

Made in to powder, and mixed with other ingredients for marzipan

Overall, the taste is really great in a cake

Nutty and sweet – from the seed that escapes from that

Delicately pitted light brown casing

Some would say – they’re delicious! (especially in chocolate!)
