A heart of fire

That wasn’t dinner that’s burning away

Truth is you had me at – “Hello”

Tomorrow they say is another day, so

Tonight we’ll dance to the light of the moon and let

Tomorrow’s arrival take its time

In Other Words – Delicious

A five line response to the picture provided for the prompt by Patricia’s Place @ https://patriciasplace.me/

perfectly pampered puddytat

ponders whats for tea

perhaps chicken or pork, or maybe – beef ?

his belief – but today his wish

is a big plate of fish

Scraping the content from around the brim

While the jar of delight moves in the breeze

It’s manna from heaven for this master of flight

Now clinging on the chains in happiness as the

Green bird gets his fill in the garden

Possibly, he’s potty about this stuff

enjoying the sticky paste to the full

as he’s perched by his claws on the jar

note though, as the nuts are in the butter – his head

up to his beak in

the smooth paste

Best thing of all though, is

Until he’s through

The jar will keep on swinging,

Thanks to the ropes bound tightly round it

Even though our feathered friend will fly off soon, a

Return journey will happen some time tomorrow

Pancakes

A response by inky to https://patriciasplace.me/2019/08/28/in-other-words-pancakes/

Pussycat perched at the edge of the table

Perfectly poised to grab the spoils

Pancakes positioned on the table cloth

Precariously plonked by our furry friend – who

Pulls to pinch all the pudding!

Waiting

Inky’s response to the prompt

It’s not the right time

to be walking round in a big woolly jumper

so atop the hill the sheep await

the shepherd and his pals

to get a well needed haircut

In response to https://patriciasplace.me/2019/07/24/in-other-words-improvise/

Late night concoction

Brought together from an idea

Leftover pasta brought back to life in a pan

with butter, onions, pesto and carrot

Served up for lunch in a bowl
