Zest

Zingy is how you might call it

each pore of the citrus fruits skin

holds a little bit inside

and as your figures begin to split

the fruit’s smell contained therein

escaping into the room

where it does reside

enhancing the flavour into which you’ve just bit

San-san

Wrapped up in Marzipan

this ever special bake

isn’t a mince-pie

that’s something that isn’t a flan

but definitely what you would call a cake

filled with fruit that’s full of flavour

and perfect for all the family to try

a pudding that everyone will savour

Trickery

In response to Fandango’s one word challenge

You knew your nephew wouldn’t eat his greens

every mealtime saw a trip to the bin

but appreciating his happy sweet tooth

you snook something into pudding unseen

and eating with the custard you did grin

as he ate up his carrots with a great big smile

hidden in the sponge cake with sultanas between

and wouldn’t complain about veg – for a while

Garden Apple Pie

 

A San-San By Brian F Kirkham (Inky)

 

The branches against the household wall

holds fruit that’s ripening for a pie

blackberry stems bring fruit with flavour this season

that answers to the pastries call

over with envy the birds do fly

could this be why it cooks with haste ?

depriving the feathered hunters a reason

to head for the window to grab a taste

The loaf

A San-San for the Daily post prompt

Grainy

multigrain

Born from the bakers creative mind

A Combination of skill, talent, water seed

King at breakfast time

Every body by the toaster will find

Round soft boiled eggs, to fill the need

If cereal’s a missing – and there’s no jam

Eaten before the school bell chime

Some fill in the space – a round of boiled ham

A Flowery San-San

In a porcelain pot

sits some stripy pink flowers

in a group – there’s a lot

passing the hours

positioned in centre of table at a meal

by the chef and his team who are more than able

to show off their wares and create a feel

Honeycomb

18th May 2017

A San-San poem – Origins rooted on the Greek Island of Crete

 

Honeybee.jpg

On holiday by a grecian water

I saw a flying insect having some tea

it flew for the pollen from flower to flower

occasionally passing a grecian sun or daughter

it was happy to pass through the flowers this bee

till it was time to head for home

where it spend a passing hour

away from the sun making honeycomb.

Manatee

 

#coloryourworld #cyw #manatee

Mammal that lives in the tropical seas

Aquatic in the way it moves and breathes

Natural resident of west Indian water

Animal that grazes sea floor as it please

two large flippers allow him to weave

enjoying the plants lying under his feet

Each a present perhaps from neptunes daughter

sumptuous food for an afternoon treat

Blue is the sky

the kite flies through

marshmallow pillows

and as it flies

rainbows brand new

travel through the air

passing over high white willows

colours of strawberry, orange, apple, banana and pear

A Colourful San-San

Salford, 22nd November

Another piece on Rainbows and art.

When white light bends

through northern skies

It always raises a smile

 

The colours never end

with this pleasant surprise

captured by the eye

 

So, pick up your brush and paint the scene

and let the colours, red through green, fly
