A piece by inky with a little bit of art…..

popping up out of the ground…..(created by Inky from a Wikipedia image)


The woody stalk

popped up from the earthy soil

and began a race


Seven other green spears

headed headlong to the sun

as the flowers watched


Prize to the Victor?

they’re Basted in Butter,

On Silver Salvers

asparagus

As far as I know, I’ve never seen your flowers

Some gardeners I’ve spoken to say they’re white, some say yellow

Perhaps they’re both right – but its your green stalks that

Attract the cooking fraternity , as you bathe in butter and herbs

Rolling around the pan developing your flavour

Adorable little stalks, who when departing from the pan are

Going to be joined in a mix, with Parma Ham and an Egg

Until you’ve been eaten – the critics would never understand

Some would say – you’re only good for soup, but the diners know better.
