Balance

#writeclub

Outdoors in the Midsummer wind

is a girl practicing Tai Chi on the lawn

Something she does each morning

before enjoying a morning feast

of egg and toasted soldiers

You could say its all reletive

as each piece of toast mirrors each other

around the plate

sausage provide occasional symmetry

but dont bring up the subject of beans

chasing them round – doesn’t bring balance

I

Colour of the morning sun

set amongst the blue sky

and patchy white cloud

II

Breakfast calls

in the colour of your boiled egg

circled by toasted soldiers

III

In the garden

the lions of the lawn

greet you with hello

IV

Afternoon treat

tween two slices of bread

or eaten on its own

V

Accompanient

to post – dinner sweetener

perfect with a sponge

Preparation is key

while your big billy can

is boiling up your morning tea

you don’t want to waste supplies on your first efforts

Using a steel bowl for the mixing

eight eggs meet up with salt and pepper

as butter melts in the pan

the bread has to be thick to soak up

the golden liquid it descends into

herbs ? onions ? cheese or ham ? Additional options for the masterpiece

but cook off the ingredients over the glowing embers

before putting those golden slices on the pan

Robin egg blue

Wintery Christmas Baubles

Just the colour for Christmas celebrations

icy blue to match conditions outside

note – this colour also has something akin with a festive feathered friend

going about their business – landing on tree, grass roof and fence

living in a nearby nest, tending to the young uns

except – you won’t see them this celebration, maybe next.

Breakfast

Salford, 7th April 2020

#Food #Morning #Breakfast #Napowrimo

A prompt from Writerswrite.co.za – cheers to the promptuarium for providing the list of prompts

Best meal of the day, some people call it….

Ripe tasty bananas slapped between two pieces of buttered bread, or

Egg, boiled and salted, and served up with bread soldiers

A hearty breakfast – they say, is fit for a

King….Bacon, Eggs, sausage, tomatoes….

French toast is an alternative if you don’t like chasing your food

As are cereals….but don’t forget toast and

Strawberry jam….its a crowd pleaser

That’ll please any fussy eater (or cheese if they don’t like the sweet stuff)

Debate

Salford 15th February 2020

#Fowc #Debate

During the week, it was the hot topic of conversation

Election ? Europe ? no! none of these

But a culinary conundrum – which sandwich was better

A choice of Sausage, Egg, Bacon, or Cheese

The favourite – an obvious choice – but

Everyone wants their own bite of the butty!

Battery

#FOWC #Battery

Built from the farmers imagination

A number of hens laid a dozen eggs each

The effort was stored in tiny little cells

Then used to power the cooker that

Each egg was cooked on

Revolutionary! cried the farmer

Yelping as he consumed the hot fried eggs

Noodles

Salford, 23rd February 2019

They could be mistaken for spaghetti

but these wiggly worms are made of sterner stuff

egg yellow gives you a clue of their content

clumped together in a group they drop

into steaming water – with a drop of oil

they swim around till they soften

till they’re joined by the meat and the veg –

cooking away in another pan

and then coated in sticky, sweet and savory sauce

ready for serving to all and sundry

Character Dragons Poetry

The Dragons egg

A verse for any Fantasy or Harry potter fan

by Inky

Some workers were digging
up pipes underground,
when a very large coloured egg
in the sand it was found.

Now, the foreman of th’ site
didn’t know what to do,
so he called up some keepers
from th’ local zoo.

The egg.. it was green,
and blue, brown and red,
and was lain in the ground
deep down in a bed.

A bed of red sand,
of twigs and of clays –
it looked as if th’egg
had been there for days.

Said the worker to foreman –
“where’d it come from?” , Said the Foreman – “Dunno!?!”
and just then the egg
it began to glow.

So the keepers arrived,
with their boss from the zoo,
with a team to see if
there was summat they could do.

“it could be a snake” – the zoo boss replied.
Some big builders turned – and ran off to hide!
As builders they gathered to mend their pride,
the keepers could hear a noise from inside…

The head keeper thought –
there was summat amiss,
as the egg it both glowed
and started to hiss.

The little creature inside,
was feeling awfully glum
as all that it wanted was its
Dad and its Mum

“No need for alarm!”, the zoo boss he said
“we need to give th’egg, some sort of bed
nothing to0 great and nothing so grand..”
so the builders brought over some big bags of sand.

So th’egg it was rested
in its warm sandy bed
just as two shadows
loomed overhead.

“Oh Heavens!” cried a builder
“Begorrah! Begad!
I think i’ve just seen
Th’ eggs Mum and Dad!”

Two big scaly dragons, one green and one blue,
over the heads of the people they flew.
The Head Keeper called for everyone’s calm –
he knew that the dragons, didn’t mean any harm.

And little egg it glowed brighter
as little dragon did peck
and Mum and Dad Dragon
landed on the deck

And Mummy Dragon landed,
as Dad flew over sky
as dragons egg it opened
and the contents it said “Hi!”

And Dragons’ smiled kindly
nodding thank you to the team.
They named their little lad “Burnie” –
who was their little red dream

They then made their Zoo friends happy,
as they watched three dragons at night
as Mum and Dad took little Burnie
Off on his first little flight.

And then, politely nodding
they said their thanks and goodbye.
As the dragon’s family headed
to their home up high in the sky!
