Burnt Orange

People
A head to turn heads

When you entered the room

Instantly, you turned the boys heads

Like Desdemona had arrived

Dynamic

Heaven’s angel mixed with Hell’s fury

Only time would decide what happened next

Meeting up with old friends

By the banks of the waterside

Reality – you would be back at your post come morning

Expectations – out of the window.

Atomic Tangerine Rose created by inky in Photoshop elements


As they shook up the bottle of fizzy fruit juice

A fantastic reaction began

Bubbles rose up to the top of the bottle

Bursting to escape

Crazy idea – of the kids – was releasing the bottles

Cap – with the addition of air – reaction was complete

Destination for the neon orange liquid – No one knew – they all

Dived for cover – as fizzy orange rain fell

Expectation – the vegetable patch

End result – over Grandpa’s prize white roses

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

#CFFC #Octopus #Underwater #Sea

He swam from tropical waters

and landed in our seas

rescued by a trawler

from being a seagulls tea

The boatmen stored him carefully

as they made their way to the dock

a wildlife officer would come on board

at the entrance to the lock

Far too risky to put back in the waters

so they took him to a kind of zoo

“The Sea Life Centre” near Old Trafford

Travelling down the M62

And the keepers they took care of him

and made sure he was watered and fed

as he found a spot in the waters

and headed off to bed

Yummy Fruit!

A Tangerine for Elevenses

When they are around, when i’m heading for BASIC I always take a Tangerine (or two)with me for the break period during the photography class.  I like fruit, but Tangerines more, because of the way they fit in the hand and are easy to Peel!

They are also less messy than another of my Favourites , Oranges…(see below)

Three of my Favourite Fruits

I like oranges, particularly the juice.  But also sliced up and served with a dash of sugar.

Apples are great any time of the year, but if I had to pick a favourite I prefer green to red

When the greengrocer can get them, I also enjoy Kiwi fruit – you cant eat the skin but this fuzzy haired fruit has a really lovely taste

They say you should have five a day – but the fruit is nice any time of the day.bananaAnother fruit I enjoy are Bananas.  Any time of the Day.  either as part of Breakfast, or as a pudding after lunch or tea….Normally seen eaten by me tween two slices of Warburton’s Wholemeal – with or without the addition of chocolate spread 🙂

Also nice covered in custard, or in a cake – or a mix of the two 🙂 Apologies for the last pic not being here – I scoffed the evidence (Hee Hee!)

Very striking – you stand out in a crowd

In fact, your flower heads  offset the other colours in the border, from the

Orange of the marigolds surrounding your stem or the

Lemon yellows of the pansies nearby

Everyone in the garden, enjoys your colourful view, as

They pass you walking on the garden path
