Yellow-orange

#CYW #Yellow-orange

Someone’s been mixing up the citrus again

the orange juice looks that little more….

what’s the word ? Zingy ?

and that’s before you took the cap off the bottle

Lifting the lid gives you a clue

to the origin of the brighter orange

there’s a zip of lemon, and the zest of lime

Yellow Green

#CYW #Yellow-green

A pair of most confused fruit

hung from the citrus tree

the gardeners couldn’t decide

if they were lemons or limes

you see as they were growing

it was clear as can be

two little green limes – hanging off the tree

but soon there was change and sunshine appeared

as the limes turned to lemons – it seemed a bit weird

the chef in the kitchen came out to the tree

and the fruit that was hanging there to have a look – see

he took them to the kitchen and there took a taste

then put them in a pie so they wouldn’t go to waste

and the staff in the garden all had a try

of the in-between lemon (or was it lime?) pie

It takes time to cook as

King of the greek menu

lounging around in slow bath of tomatoes, onions and potatoes

enveloping the smells and tastes of lemon

fresh feta cheese and oregano

traditionally made this way for years

its slow cooked to let the meat

fall off the bone, and infuse in all those lovely flavours

of course, being Lamb – it serves more than one – be happy to share

Some say Like a bright yellow lemon

Hot headed ? Far from it….

As your aim at your targets are pinpoint

Rapier like wit and a brilliant mind and good looks

People should look out – you’re not just a pretty face

Laser Lemon

#Coloryourworld #Cyw #Laserlemon

Whatever you do

be careful with that zingy coloured fruit

as you carve through the peel for its zest

it’ll come back at you as fast as lightning

blink – and you’ll miss it as it flies headlong toward your eye

it’s a flavour that’ll make your tongue sing

and bring a tang to any fruit pie

but watch out – its a fruit that’ll fight back!

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!

Green-Yellow


#CYW #Green-Yellow

There’s something about your shade

you could be a fresh lemon, or a zesty lime on the canvas

the artist just can’t decide,

for the fruit in the bowl can be your colour while it ripens up

turning yellow or green when its ready for eating

Tuesday 25th February 2020

For years, they’ve been doing this

launching a layer of thinly cooked batter

into the air with

precision and height – could you say it was

perfect ? maybe – but that all comes from the

entry of the pancake – back into the pan

drizzle of lemon and a bit of honey ? just the way to finish
