Spaghetti II

I

Like long blonde hairs

they sit in the silvery tube

waiting to lie in the bubble bath

of water, oil and salt

II

Resolve in the steam ? a surprise

Durum wheat holding out

until the moment arrives

and surrender to the bubbling water

III

Sauce bubbles away as

they sit in the jacuzzi

Tomatoes onions and carrot

combine for the perfect accompaniment

IV

Meat or Veg ?

the obvious question

Mince or Meatballs for the carnivores

Mushrooms and Marrow for the herbivores

Point of evaporation

#writeclub

a response to a writeclub prompt by inky

The heat of the kitchen

was the moment

The hydrogen twins

departed from their oxygen mum

And went their own way

Flying around the air

In an attempt to find their own space

Simmer

Simmer

Several chopped carrots danced around

In the silver saucepan as they

Mingled and merged with Vegetable Stock, Onions and Herbs to

Make a most delicious soup, served up that afternoon

Exactly what the doctor ordered – Summat

Really Tasty for lunchtime

Infuse

TeacupInfuse

Salford, 28th May 2017

It’s funny – how

night after night

fresh tea leaves bring flavour

under a little bit of help from

some boiling water

enjoy it with milk and sugar – or perhaps some lemon?
