Tea

Photo by Mareefe on Pexels.com

Taken at every time of the day

Especially in the Morning

At Breakfast Time

There are times when a cuppa can be quite a ritual

Enjoying sandwiches and cakes with

A Brew around four or five

Tea comes from different locations

Each has its individual flavour

Assam, Darjeeling or even Yorkshire….

Taken any other time of the day – its an

Escape from the daily grind

A moment to refresh – and enjoy a biscuit

Refrigerator opens – and

out of a frosty draw

comes marshmallow, biscuit and chocolate

kept hidden in a cherry ice cream

you’ll be talking about in the playground for weeks

Reactions to the initial tastes

out of nowhere – sounds of immediate

approval….an immediate suggestion for

dessert after tea.

Summats brewin

Late night on a Tuesday ,

Watching a comedy on the golden channel

While Russell Hobbs is whipping up a storm

For my late night cup of tea

The fruit tea looks on enviously,

No imitations tonight …. I’ll leave that to the comedians

Tea bag oozes through the milk till it gets that oh so ready colour

When two sugars take a dip in the golden pool

A slurp and a sip, before

My favourite chocolate biscuit, takes a dip.

Endurance

Dunkin :image from stock art by inky

It wasn’t the walk through wintery woods

that bothered this hardened explorer

or the westerly wind knocking

on the wooden window frame

or the wait for his dinner to be cooked on

his camping gas stove

It was more the length of time

spent dunking his oaty ships biscuits in his tea

before the biscuit fell into his mug.

Taking five

Taking five

He escaped the initial onslaught of christmas day

Hiding in plain sight whilst watching the fondant animals

get chomped by all and sundry

now lying in marshmallow luxury

in his grand gingerbread palace

his life clock – short, much like himself

but he’ll enjoy his time till the hot chocolate gets brewed.

Biscuit

Salford, 3rd June 2020

Baked – like a cake – but for longer

it’s middle depends on it’s flavour

sometimes it’s jam if its a dodger

creamy flavoured middle if custard or bourbon

usually eaten with a beverage, like tea or coffee

incredible range down the biscuit aisle

taken and dunked, regularly, around afternoon tea

Millionare’s Shortbread

4th May 2019

funny what I can come up with, when I’m peckish


Sandwiched together
hot off the confectioners table
oblong biscuits of loveliness
rippled with caramel and chocolate
taken usually with a nice cup of tea
crafted by an artisan
and served up as part of an afternoon lunch
keeping watch, children with a sweet tooth
expecting a piece of this dessert after the sandwiches

Digestive

Definitely something to go with cheese

In a salad, with tomato and cucumber

Goes great in a picnic or lunch box

Even nicer when covered in dark chocolate

Some say, it’s the daddy of all biscuits

To others, the rich tea aficionados

Its a worthy opponent

Versatile whether with a hot drink, or on a meal plate or

Even in a pudding (like on a cheesecake base)

Chocolate (Acrostic)

#Octpowrimo

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

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
