Crafted from the cocoa bean and
Hot steamed milk
Out of the cold autumnal morning
Comes something warm and satisfying
Only your tastebuds can truly tell why you
Like it so much
As you send a biscuit in
The sweet smelling brew, for a bit of an
Salford 12th June 2018
Sits on the window – awaiting his next
Order – arrival of supplies, a
Little late, but
Destination is assured
In time – he’ll receive the goods and keep them safe from
Eager little hands, – the precious cargo will be
Right where they cant see it
I sit there staring
at four sides of a gold lined tin
no biscuits lie therein
Someone has taken those covered delights
and won’t say who – avoiding a fight
Should I cry ? and be distraught
for the fate of those flapjacks – baked and not bought?
hopes and dreams fade away
until of course – next shopping day
For other residents of the world, before I begin the tale of this unusual case, I must explain (Briefly) what Hobnobs are
They are a very yummy kind of biscuit produced in the UK, made out of rolled oats, a bit of wheat and (most importantly) Honey and Brown Sugar.
They are Easily identified by their Orange Label…
I’d been taking photos of them as part of my Photography session at BASIC, and had them set up in the image….
Evidence – “Someone” has been at them !!!
I Go away for a cup of tea….and
They’ve Gone!!!! – Now’t left but crumbs!
(:)) Don’t know where they went 🙂
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ready, Set, Done!.”
In my room, on the top of a cupboard by my writing desk, lives a relatively old biscuit tin. Its Metallic red in colour and has the main characters of the Winnie-the-Pooh stories on it.
There’s Winnie-the-pooh (or as I like to call him ‘Pooh Bear’), his small friend Piglet, His not so gloomy friend – Eeyore the donkey and his Bouncy friend, Tigger. The outside rim of the tin has pictures associated with the Hundred Acre Wood where they live in the stories, namely bees and their hives and butterflies.
At the moment – the tin isn’t being used for anything sweet…more to hold the device used to buy something sweet, Odd stray coppers, and silver coins liberally adorn the gold coloured base of the tin. At Christmas, the coins will vacate to be used for the next occupants – namely bags of fudge or sweets and later, biscuits – which will be the ones made for the tree itself – made of shortbread and tasting of vanilla honey or chocolate (Pooh Bear would appreciate that a lot)
After Christmas, the biscuits will be long gone – so with the coins away at the bank and the tin lying empty – Honey Cakes will be a perfect replacement (with Easter around the corner), as will the various flavours of fudge which appear around my birthday time. My Favourite Flavour – Chocolate, but I’ve had everything from Strawberry to Coconut fudge in that tin…and everytime I’ve opened it for a treat there’s always been a little someone pop their head round the kitchen door to see what’s inside it.
