Golden

#CYW #Gold

There’s nothing better than a summer sky

warm coloured tones of

corn or wheat growing in the farmers field

or maybe the thought

of sinking your toes into warm golden sands

before dipping them in the sea

breakfast dinner or tea – wonderous eggs

dipped with bread soldiers

for an afternoon feast

Bank Holiday Monday

#Easter #Holiday

The collective heads at the weather office

looked dumbfounded at the view outside the window

it was a common convention – it rained on a Bank Holiday

and yet, blue skies and sun were the order of the day

flowers were drenched in sunshine

and people were enjoying picnics in the park

as confectioners ran with their easter eggs

to keep their creations whole.

The Austerity Breakfast

Thin

(you’ll either love it or hate it)

Lightly boil two eggs and place aside

Put two pieces of bread in your toaster

Once toasted, slice into soldiers and smear with Marmite / Vegemite

you won’t need the butter – and save on the salt

Pancake day

Salford 13th February 2018

Party in a pan

As the flour and egg mix

Navigates its way around

Creating a treat

As yummy as it can be

Keep it nice and hot

Enveloping the sweet filling

Transformation II

Transformation

in the kitchen

magic is performed

as

yellow butter

white sugar

brown flour

some eggs

and mixed fruit

join together in harmony

with the aid of nutmeg, cinnamon and mixed space

 

popped in the oven

and left to combine

they jump about in the warm

and become solid or baked

forming a most wonderful substance

a cake.

Nest

Nest

Near to the top of the tree

eggs are sitting in their little bed of twigs

safely in a huddle until

the time arises to hatch – with a little help from mum and dad

Robin egg blue

#Coloryourworld #CYW #Robineggblue

Up high in a tree

in a cosy twig nest

four little eggs

sleep where they are best

hidden away from their avian foes

protected from wind, the rain and the snows

mum and dad watching from a branch at height

keeping an eye on the eggs that are bright

Much like their cousins, whose shells are white

they sleep both at day, and mostly at night

till the time comes to spread their wings

and they taste the goodies their mum and dad brings

Asparagus

#Coloryourworld #Cyw #Asparagus

asparagus

As far as I know, I’ve never seen your flowers

Some gardeners I’ve spoken to say they’re white, some say yellow

Perhaps they’re both right – but its your green stalks that

Attract the cooking fraternity , as you bathe in butter and herbs

Rolling around the pan developing your flavour

Adorable little stalks, who when departing from the pan are

Going to be joined in a mix, with Parma Ham and an Egg

Until you’ve been eaten – the critics would never understand

Some would say – you’re only good for soup, but the diners know better.
