Fish and Chips – Kind Of

fish in parsley sauce – impressionist by inky.

The noble fish sat on my plate

hadn’t had a battering

it had been enjoying a bath like Cleopatra

getting all warm and tasty

Upon leaving the path it was

wrapped up in a coat of green

to enhance its wonderful flavour

and rested on a bed of buttery potato

And while it lay there in on the plate

lying in its luxury

a cohort of peas stood on a potato ridge

to keep it safe from wondering eyes

But alas all were devoured

in the haze of white and green

grappled apart by trident and sword

by the chef and his guests

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

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

Challenge 30 – No10

Food…..or should I say Foooood!

I could be some time with this particular part of the challenge !(sic)

I mean where to begin – I’m a bit of a foodie. I enjoy my food – not just the meats but the pasta and vegetables as well. Christmas time sees a smorgasbord of delights, from Spiced Ham to cheesy pasta bakes – not forgetting of course Christmas pudding and Battenburg Cake

My Nephews are partial to a bit of Jelly and custard at Christmas, and for the adults aside from the Christmas pud, there’s usually the Content for a trifle on the go. But this year they helped make something really special – a tray of gingerbread men…now I don’t know if any of them escaped the Christmas table but one or two of them definitely did a disappearing act…

Infuse

TeacupInfuse

Salford, 28th May 2017

It’s funny – how

night after night

fresh tea leaves bring flavour

under a little bit of help from

some boiling water

enjoy it with milk and sugar – or perhaps some lemon?

Chocolate Dreams

A poem from 2015….the first post of 2016

Happy new year, WordPressers!

The chocolate fell
at speed
into the vortex
of swirling
bubbling milk

Steam from
Frothy
Velvety Milk
rose delightfully
transporting
Orange Chocolate
scents
into the air

Rising like
bubbles
of Mississippi
Mud
Happy Hippopotamuses
Mused

Perfect end of the day
before hitting
Purple Pillows and
dreamspace
