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

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!

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

Ode to a sandwich

Salford, 6th August

So, here we are, with a noble invention

A combination of ingredients

Now brought together, with love tween two slices of bread

Daintily paired, meats and vegetables

When required –  sauces or spices

It’s what you might call – a matter of taste

Combining flavour and texture – the eater

Happy in the knowledge, theres not much washing up!

A Food acrostic – not to be confused with the game you throw a ball at 🙂

 

Sealed up in the big plastic bag

Kept in your travel case

Is a multitude of flavour – A rainbow of taste

Tastebuds tingle, at the very

Thought of flavours

Like Lemon, strawberry, Lime, Orange and Blackcurrant

Each little sweet, exploding with flavour

Sensational

Garden Apple Pie

 

A San-San By Brian F Kirkham (Inky)

 

The branches against the household wall

holds fruit that’s ripening for a pie

blackberry stems bring fruit with flavour this season

that answers to the pastries call

over with envy the birds do fly

could this be why it cooks with haste ?

depriving the feathered hunters a reason

to head for the window to grab a taste
