In the Fridge

A tale of an ice cube in Summer, by Inky

An ice cube took a holiday

from the freezer he was in

took a trip to warmer times

enjoying with a grin

He sat on a place by some fruit

just by the processed meat

and began to drip on his saucer

staying together – a bit of a feat

Avoiding the butter and onions

he waited in his pool

dripping away in the fridge

while others thought it cool

but then oh what a great big show,

as into a jug he did go

joining the fruit and ice cubes in the pool

keeping the humans lovely and cool

Sugarcube (2.1)

A poem by inky, from a prompt by

Www.serafinajayne.co.uk #sugar

shaped like a cube

formed from the beet

never tasted summat so sweet

taken from a root, out of ground it grew

only question to ask…do you take one lump or two?

as it falls in the cup into coffee or tea

aided with help by gravity

Sugarcube (Structure II)

Sugarcube , Impressionist Art by Inky

Structure

Sat in a bowl, on the dining room table

Up by the milk and the teapot

Grains of sweetness cling together like

Army platoons – forming a

Regular shaped solid

Created to provide something to cut through the

Underlying bitterness of your tea, coffee, or even chocolate

Because to many the original product needs a little sweetening

Even fruit gets a helping hand – just watch the calories (and your teeth!)

Fizz bomb

#coloryourworld #atomictangerine

the atomic tangerine 🍊

dropped into the pool of

clear hot water 💦

Reactions to the spheres arrival

as it nose dived into the blue

were instantaneous….

Little children 👶 smiled away

not it in the way

it fizzed away

Like orangeade exploding

into the blue

but  mostly how its scent

originally meant

for the upstairs bathroom

could be found In the kitchen too
