Sponge

#fowc #sponge

I

Something found on the sea shore

perhaps lying lazily around the cockles, whelks and clams

on occasion, travelling by bobbing about the water

numbers of them can be spotted on the seaweed

getting their nutrients for the day from

each drop of seaweed they enjoy

II

Supping up the drops of soapy bathwater

propped up by perfumed foam

often sinking below the water line

navigating its way towards the plug hole

gets squeezed during bath time by

excitable kiddies

Combination

#Fowc #combination

some call it a recipe

others a mixture

several ingredients

coming together in a bowl

to form the perfect pudding

and it isn’t the flour , butter or eggs

that are the star of the show

or even the fruit thats gone in or over it

no – this is a team effort

served up on a serving spoon after the chicken dinner

key question – anyone for custard?

I

Colour of the morning sun

set amongst the blue sky

and patchy white cloud

II

Breakfast calls

in the colour of your boiled egg

circled by toasted soldiers

III

In the garden

the lions of the lawn

greet you with hello

IV

Afternoon treat

tween two slices of bread

or eaten on its own

V

Accompanient

to post – dinner sweetener

perfect with a sponge

Peach Pudding

#Napowrimo #peach #fruit #poem #response

Peach, Sliced – by Inky

A response to Aubade: Some Peaches, After Storm by Carl Phillips you can read his poem Here

Perhaps the idea of

eating a bruised peach

after its fell headlong towards the ground

could be considered

hell on earth to a fruit connoisseur

Put in a pan

enveloped with

a mix of butter and sugar, and a spot of spice

combined with a light soft sponge ?

heavenly

Not So Bad

#schooldays #promptuarium

With the current lockdown

the kids are back in school

forget the bug that’s virulent

the doctors overruled

Schooldesks spaced out plenty

while lessons start anew

learning english maths and all

for tests that are a due

And playtime the kids are spaced out

in their own little spots and squares

its not much fun playing on your own

but at least you’re in the fresh air

But the signs of good things a coming

can be smelt coming down from the hall

the smell of custard with pudding

has made its way through the classroom wall

Bring on the puddings!

#FDDA #Sweet #Sponge #Puddings

I do like a sponge pudding

coming to life in the oven

covered in fruity delights

sweet soft pillows of loveliness

and that’s before you get to the custard!

Patience

#Patience #Freedomofexpression

Perhaps it’s a special gift

Angels have tonnes of the stuff – apparently

Time stored away – to be

Instantly used in that one

Exceptional moment –

Note the handywork in the

Craftsmanship –

expertly laid on the coconut sponge – that takes patience.

Sponge

#Fruit #Sponge #Custard #Pudding

Something to eat not quite after

Partaking in the evening meal, – full

Of yummy fruit – or maybe even Chocolate!

Now, its nice to have with Custard

Great Hot (or Cold)

Enjoyed by all after teatime

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

#Cake #Marzipan #Sweet #Battenburg #Sponge #Pudding #Jam

Built like

a sponge colossus

to many – a

teatime snack to

enjoy just after your chops and vegetables

now how much you have is down to you

but then again – its a question of how much sponge

unless of course, you don’t like Marzipan

reactions to this cake – understandable

“great!  can we have one more slice please ?”
