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

Banana

Salford 24th April 2020

#Napowrimo #Napowrimo.net #Banana #Fruit

An acrostic on one of my favourite fruits

These wonderful fruits – start off green

as they make their long journey to my fruit bowl

kept in cold storage and delivered by boat

exiting one set of islands for another and

navigating their way to the nearest store

The secret is to make sure, the fruit

ripens at the right time

as although its very sweet to eat – its

not appealing to young eyes if they’ve turned more than yellow

so into the frosty vans they travel

paying attention to the temperature

only when the time is right will they

reappear on the shop front

to be bought by the customer

excitable little minds asking

dad or mum to put them in the shopping basket

ending up tween two slices of wholemeal or

accompanied by some nice vanilla ice cream

there’s many ways a banana can be enjoyed

even cooked in a pan and served up with a

nicely made butterscotch sauce

Bananamania (V2)

#CYW #Bananamania

Two bunches of Bananas
Two Bunches of Bananas


Bright Yellow, when ripe

A favourite at lunchtime

Noted as a treat for most primates

And eaten, on its own or

Notably tween two slices of bread, or

As a pudding,

Maybe, covered in custard

Apes enjoy them – diced and with the skins on

Now, I like them baked, with a drop of

Ice cream….

Anyway you have them – they’re delicious!




Baked Bananas

By the time you’ve read this

A pair of bananas

Nestled in Tinfoil with Chocolate and Marshmallow will

Arrive on a plate ready for eating

Nice with any sort of ice cream

A favourite pudding after tea!

Memories

#memories

Many a happy time

Enjoyed on the shoreline

Munching away at the contents

Of a well prepared picnic basket

Roast chicken sandwiches and strawberry tarts

Iced buns and banana pudding….

Eaten on a camp blanket, by a rocky shelter

Somewhere where the sardines are safe from the local seagulls

Brian’s Banana Loaf

Another challenge from WordPress’ 365 Writing Prompts

If a restaurant were to name something after you, what
would it be? Describe it.

(Ok….Dailypost, here goes nothing….!!!)

A pure delight

a combination of sweet bananas

flour , butter eggs and chocolate chips

not forgetting the sugar of course

creamed together the main ingredients

and the star of the show folded through

stuck in a buttered greaseproof tin

and sat in a nice warm oven

Towards end of cooking – cook the custard

Take out of oven – cut a very big slice

and cover in the custard

and simply – enjoy.

Core

Central to most trees fruit

Oranges pears apples or bananas

real safe centres … some soft some hard.  Most

Edible, but the centre and their pips are quite woody

Banana butties 🥪

Salford, 4th April 2018

built of sterner stuff than your average elevenses

a wonderous mix of fruity goodness

nautically navigated via big boats

and delivered to supermarket shelves and

next, layered tween two slices of buttered bread

an absolute delight, with your afternoon beverage

Flavorful

Bananasplit

Served up in a glass bowl

Wonderful fruit combines with frosty ice cream

Everyone smiling as the bananas are

Enveloped by the Ice cold tastes of strawberry and chocolate and cream

Together – as they melt and mingle – they make a heavenly delight

Unmellow

#Coloryourworld #cyw #Unmellowyellow

Hardly the mellowest flower in the garden

your bright colour screams for attention –

a central figure among the reds and the blues

look at me! you cry as people picnic on the green grassy lawn.

surrounded by you and your siblings

they agree as they feast on their banana sandwiches

and drink their old fashioned lemonade

you certainly brighten up the day.

Yellow

#Coloryourworld #Cyw #Yellow

I like the colour yellow,

like the way it appears in a sunny day

or a soft boiled egg at breakfast

so many colours depend on it

we’d have bluegrass on the lawn

and funny coloured sunflowers

and Citrus fruits ? No Orange, Lemon or Lime

So Have a Banana! and Rejoice!

this bright and colourful fellow,

The colour who makes Mustard Bite

yet makes Bananas and Custard Mellow

perhaps you might like to celebrate

with a Lemon meringue pie on your plate.
