Out of this world

Out of This World


Taken root

On a spot of earth

Alien invader starts to feed

Devouring the water below

Some plants sit, aghast as they watch

The alien eat up their food like an unwanted guest

Others, are more philisophical as

Over time – the alien and his cohort – will be

Lifted, and thrown away – or (if edible) eaten


Athought from inky in response to the prompt



Give your love a sweet Valentine invitation

on a piece of rice paper parchment

send it with hand picked roses

made from flavoured marzipan

and those vegetables she doesn’t like on her salad

will taste o so much sweeter when she finds they’re strawberries

When you look at the art of the written word

understanding what’s written on the page is important

particularly, if you’re making a cake

A fine line tween success and failure

Misreading a teaspoon for a tablespoon

even to a most learned chef – can lead to disaster

as what can be produced – can be quite inedible
