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

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 ?

Bitter

Acrostic, Chocolate, Treat

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

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.

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!)
