Apples and Pears

Fruit stall : Image from Paperswans

There’s plenty of variety on show

at the local market

Apples of various kinds

Oranges, Tangerines

Pears, Plums and Peaches

Strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries

(Not forgetting Grapes)

and like the people who buy them

there’s a host of variety to see

different sights, different flavour

of course – there are those who’d just want you to stick to the one apple

obviously – they’re bananas!

Food Fruit Poetry

BlueBerries?

#Photography #Poetry #Fruit

Blueberries ? by BFKirkham.

The picture of fruit

had changed somewhat

engaged by the air

Red strawberries, captured on film

elevated themselves up the spectrum

damsons, plums and pomegranates – were confused

For each of the fine fruit, picked from the bush

reacted on film quite differently to the eye

unless you were there – you would have called it a camera trick

instead – you put it down to the age of the film

then again – Blue Strawberry tarts ? what a sight!

Fruity Rainbow

I’ve seen rainbows in the sky, but they’ve never been as vibrant as the ones in the Greengrocers shop window

Rich Red Strawberries – it amazes me how he can get them even in Winter, but they’re tasty with sugar and cream.

Oranges – I’ll eat these till they come out of my ears, but a zesty orange sets me up for the day.

Yellow Lemons – perfect for Lemon Dishes (of course) and an accompaniment for any cocktail drink.

Green Limes – the Lemons cousin, this is nice either in a Drink or a flavouring in a sponge cake – Like the Lemon, it needs a little sugar to cut through the sharpness

Blackcurrants – wonderful flavour – works marvels in a local drink with raspberries and grapes round my neck of the woods (Manchester, UK) – Vimto

Indigo – actually the colour of “RED” Grapes – nice in a fruit salad

and last but not least Violet – the colour of Damsons – which when in a jam turns rice pudding a lovely purple colour.
