Something to look forward to

#Baking #food #pie #apple #pudding #writeclub

Salford, 10th June 2020

The preparation seemed endless

the pie dish lined with the finest pastry

rolled out , sugared and buttered

now sat there waiting for the filling

The Smell of Bubbling Bramley apples

merging together with sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon

attracts the local feathered residents

looking longingly past the window glass

dropped into a sweetened parcel

and sealed with a spiced sugared lid

finally toasted together in the oven

served up after the fish and chips

and the perfect accompaniment for it

is spluttering away on a hob

as the smell of fresh vanilla custard

meets with warm apple pie – just the job!

Oranges

An Abstract piece of art of a glass bowl full of oranges

#Fruit #Oranges #Food

Another Acrostic on Oranges

On bright summer days in spain or Greece, you’ll find these

Ripening nicely on a coastal tree somewhere

As the fruit gets ready to drop – its colour goes

Navigating from Green to Orange…a sign the fruit is

Getting ready for eating

Each nice eaten on their own , with ice cream, or perhaps

Some sugar

Buttered Scones

5th February 2019

Scones

After its appearance on Luna’s poetry bar , I thought i’d best provide it with its own spot from its originators page

I don’t know how they came up with it

they may argue about its serving

but it must have been a marvel

when flour and butter and sugar

were brought together in a combo

by the milk on the doorstep

Now coming out at four o clock

for the ladies at afternoon tea

the debate heats up on jam and cream

but a bit of southwest butter on those sultanas

is fine for a Lancashire lad like me

Early Morning

Salford 23rd August 2018

Squeaky doors

are better clarion calls

than any alarm clock

on the market

 

Slumbered silence

broken by a cistern

attracts you to the noise

of the nearby main road

 

Luna’s departure

allows Ra to announce

“The morning is here!

it’s time to get up”

 

And motorised monsters

or kings of the road

make their way delivering boxes

either side of the tarmac

 

Solitary Swallow

converses with the neighbours

on a nearby roof –

tweets the news – no laptop required

 

The rumble of early morning traffic

cascading through the windows

is followed by the crack of an egg

falling into sizzling bacon fat

 

Kettle whistles through the concrete

up through the bedroom floor

your first cup of the day is ready

milk and two sugars ?

Sugarcube (2.1)

A poem by inky, from a prompt by

Www.serafinajayne.co.uk #sugar

shaped like a cube

formed from the beet

never tasted summat so sweet

taken from a root, out of ground it grew

only question to ask…do you take one lump or two?

as it falls in the cup into coffee or tea

aided with help by gravity

Bag o’ Pear Drops

#Poetry #Sweets #Confectionary

17th July 2018

I

The container comes down

from the confectioners shelf and

each little drop of sweetness

spills into the bowl

II

Red and Yellow fancies

dusted with icing sugar

and as you open the bag

a blast of pear

III

Each Individually formed

rocky for a short while

but later smooth on the tongue

but watch for the sharp bits

IV

Thud of each drop

hitting the scale

rattle and then crunch

of the halves coming away

V

Sweet and Sour Sensations

tripping off the tongue

taking you back

to schoolday memories

Fudge

image.jpgferried by box or by bag

Usually on birthdays

Delightful cubes of butter sugar and cream

Get sent to the house

Easily a delightful treat


Fairs at Christmas time

usually have stalls selling this

delicious treat, and it’s not just cubes

great shapes are made using cutters

expect strawberry hearts, mint chocolate rounds and raspberry diamonds

Pancake day

Salford 13th February 2018

Party in a pan

As the flour and egg mix

Navigates its way around

Creating a treat

As yummy as it can be

Keep it nice and hot

Enveloping the sweet filling

Transformation II

Transformation

in the kitchen

magic is performed

as

yellow butter

white sugar

brown flour

some eggs

and mixed fruit

join together in harmony

with the aid of nutmeg, cinnamon and mixed space

 

popped in the oven

and left to combine

they jump about in the warm

and become solid or baked

forming a most wonderful substance

a cake.

Sugarcube (Structure II)

Sugarcube.jpg
Sugarcube , Impressionist Art by Inky

Structure

Sat in a bowl, on the dining room table

Up by the milk and the teapot

Grains of sweetness cling together like

Army platoons – forming a

Regular shaped solid

Created to provide something to cut through the

Underlying bitterness of your tea, coffee, or even chocolate

Because to many the original product needs a little sweetening

Even fruit gets a helping hand – just watch the calories (and your teeth!)
