Instant

It’s just the thing on a winters morning

Noted for the quickness in its preparation

Some aficionados might complain its not “The real thing”

Though if you checked the ingredients

And looked – Milk, Sugar, Cocoa – its all there

Noses attracted by the Chocolatey waft

That travels through the house from the Kitchen

There’s something different

in the chocolate wafer i enjoy

with my cup of tea

Just beyond the layer of chocolate

its like a host of bees have been playing

creating perfect hexagons in the wafers

Not too sticky, and not too sweet

smell passing the nose

wafts of honey with each individual chomp

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.

Foam

#fowc #foam

Found

on the seaside

as the waves

make up something frothy on the shore

Floating

on top of your mocha

a mix of fluffy

milk clouds and a dash of cocoa

Freshly laid out for bedtime

on here you happily sleep

as it forms to you as part of your

mattress

Explorer

#fffc

The first signs of the alien planet

from the robot explorer

gave everyone’s mouths drooling

it might take a few years to get there

said one scientist

and a few years to set up

but there’s enough chocolate mousse

for us to survive on for a lifetime……

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.

Sensation

Taking a biscuit for a paddle , Image by Inky

Early morning rumble

cars muffled by double glazing

dripping of water heading for the drain

saved by a silver – armored plugstop

fingers frolicking in warm soapy water

throwing it towards the face in play

towel comes to the rescue

and they all make their way

down to the kitchen

porcelain meets cocoa bean

and Milk or H2O

transporting our hero into another velvety dream

while waiting for his toast to go pop

Rituals

#napowrimo #chocolate #rituals

Three states of chocolate…..

a sweet piece by inky

You stood in the newsagent
observing the aisles
like an aztec worshipper
in front of a chocolate altar
Armed with your golden coins
you lifted up the chosen bar
and waited to pay at the till
The foil shone under the lamps
as you caught a sly smell
the waiting would be worth it
Golden coin for for chocolate heaven
now rubbing the bar , releasing that smell
as you take your time, with each square
A brisk Snap, an expectation
A scent of flavour, a delactation
A chocolate piece melts, a taste sensation

Saturday 26th September 2020

Four pin code on the piggy bank

Really getting upset at the rise of a bar of chocolate

Unless there’s a discount – its not getting bought

Grabbing ? no, just careful

As the pennies from your last purchase gets back into your savings box

Locked away till you have enough for another bag of sweets

Bring on the puddings!

#FDDA #Sweet #Sponge #Puddings

I do like a sponge pudding

coming to life in the oven

covered in fruity delights

sweet soft pillows of loveliness

and that’s before you get to the custard!
