Instant

It’s just the thing on a winters morning

Noted for the quickness in its preparation

Some aficionados might complain its not “The real thing”

Though if you checked the ingredients

And looked – Milk, Sugar, Cocoa – its all there

Noses attracted by the Chocolatey waft

That travels through the house from the Kitchen

Point of evaporation

#writeclub

a response to a writeclub prompt by inky

The heat of the kitchen

was the moment

The hydrogen twins

departed from their oxygen mum

And went their own way

Flying around the air

In an attempt to find their own space

Taking a biscuit for a paddle , Image by Inky

Early morning rumble

cars muffled by double glazing

dripping of water heading for the drain

saved by a silver – armored plugstop

fingers frolicking in warm soapy water

throwing it towards the face in play

towel comes to the rescue

and they all make their way

down to the kitchen

porcelain meets cocoa bean

and Milk or H2O

transporting our hero into another velvety dream

while waiting for his toast to go pop

Fragrant

#fowc #napowrimo #fragrant

I don’t know what made me fall for you

was it the beauty of your face

the way your eyes shone like sapphires?

or perhaps it was the way

while you were at the marble chopping board

you could put together a spice mix

that was sweeter than any rose in the garden?

Way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, wrote a wise man

But he’ll never forget the way you captured mine

mixing it up in the kitchen

Ode to a fish slice

Salford, 17th May 2020

The latest challenge to members of the write club

Write a poem on a kitchen utensil……i did mine on a fish slice

Oh noble utensil

Rescuer of the friday night supper

As the chips cook under the lights under the grill

Note as you look after your charge

Guiding it around so its batter armour doesn’t break

Even your fellow utensils on the range know – this takes patience.

And when its time for the king of the cod to

Meet up with his army of

Brilliantly browned potatoes

Every precaution is taken to

Rest his majesty into the protection of his soldiers

Dough

#fowc #Dough

Down in a corner of the kitchen

Over by the bread bin and

Under a tea towel

Great things are happening – the bread’s beginning to prove

Hot ovens await, and butter and jam soon after

Copper

#CYW #Copper

Copper Kettle

Could this element

Out of all of those

Perched on the Periodic Table, be the most useful ?

Pink orange in colour – the metal gives the colour a name

Expect to see pans and pots, formed from it

Resident in kitchens up and down the land

Sweet supper

Salford 19th August 2019

#Food #Sandwich #Hazelnut #Chocolate #Spread #Supper

Sat in the kitchen – pondering

What to have to satisfy my inner pooh bear

End of the cupboard – the bread bin

End of the corner cupboard – the provisions store

Taking the last of the hazelnut spread tween two pieces of wholemeal – delicious!

Spill

#Fowc #Kitchen #Spill

Some say “You can’t cry over spilt milk”

put into context – when that milk

is in a chocolate pudding – and its

landed on the kitchen floor – tears will flow as

lapping it up – instead of you – is your pet pussycat

In the kitchen

Cat Sleeping in a kitchen
the prompt

It’s not easy when you’re little
the obstacle course
of the family house
can be treacherous
at the best of times

And after you wake up from your bed
if your mum isn’t there
you wait for what seems like
another lifetime
for your owner to appear

So while i wait for breakfast
i’ll enjoy another catnap
with my catnip mouse
and ball of wool
in the corner of the kitchen
