Tea

Taken at every time of the day

Especially in the Morning

At Breakfast Time

There are times when a cuppa can be quite a ritual

Enjoying sandwiches and cakes with

A Brew around four or five

Tea comes from different locations

Each has its individual flavour

Assam, Darjeeling or even Yorkshire….

Taken any other time of the day – its an

Escape from the daily grind

A moment to refresh – and enjoy a biscuit

Taste

I

Bitter, Salty, Sweet or Sour

Sensations landing on your tastebuds

What is that wonderful fruity flavour

It’s on the tip of your tongue

but you haven’t said it yet

II

Raspberry Jacket and Banana Shirt

with trousers and shoes to match

maybe it’s the height of fashion in the magazines

certainly makes you talk of the town on the shopping run

III

Country or Town

Suburbia or out in the sticks?

Cottage, Terrace, Mansion or Shed ?

Choice of Home – is down to you

but it’s not everybody’s cup of tea

Deep

#SoCs #Deep

Salford 4th April 2020

It’s hard to really appreciate the dish

without taking some time over it

the fish – had been swimming with others

free to explore – developing

evading all predators –

from the polar bear in the north

to the seals and penguins in the south

all to be caught by a net

trawled to a port and

cooked up by a chef

battered within an inch of its old life

in oil so hot – it almost leapt onto the plate

and served by a waitress, Annette

while eaten by the regulars with chips and peas

its eaten by the gastronome

with lemon and tartar sauce……Flavour? DEEP!

Acrostic Food Fruit Poetry

Zest

Zingy is how you might call it

each pore of the citrus fruits skin

holds a little bit inside

and as your figures begin to split

the fruit’s smell contained therein

escaping into the room

where it does reside

enhancing the flavour into which you’ve just bit

San-san

Wrapped up in Marzipan

this ever special bake

isn’t a mince-pie

that’s something that isn’t a flan

but definitely what you would call a cake

filled with fruit that’s full of flavour

and perfect for all the family to try

a pudding that everyone will savour

Bittersweet

Salford, 9th July 2019

Biting the tongue

in an instant,

the tang that is unforgettable

taking your taste buds on a whirlwind

expedition as it journeys

round your mouth

sensational flavour that brings

water to your eyes – as it wasn’t

expected, rising and

elevating each

taste sensation , till you finish the glass.

Chocolate Food Pleasures Poetry

Chocolate Orange

Tap, and Unwrap

That’s how it goes

and a scent of orange

wafts up my nose

Scent – then a taste

of orange from oil

captured in chocolate segments

held in the foil

Dark light and White

Mixes of chocolate and zest

Melt in the mouth zing

A taste that’s the best

Cold Water

Coldwater

My latest piece for Allpoetry.com

which I’ve decided to share with you all….enjoy

Fresh from a Lakeland reservoir
turned over by occasional waterfall
a polar bears delight
particularly in winter season

Hitting the receptacle crisply
it creates a bubble or two at the bottom
bringing out the flavour
of the drink it dilutes

Refreshment in Hot days
as well as cold
delivering fruitiness to the taste buds
like an bullet express train

Do you want it colder ?
then leave it in the fridge
or make it frosty instantly
with a couple of ice cubes
