All Spent up

I don’t know what you’d call it

Inflation , perhaps ?

If you took your single gold coin

Inside the confectioner’s

It would give you half the bag of boiled sweets

Instead of what you got last year

In fact you wouldn’t get any change

It would leave you with empty pockets.

Floating round the funfair,

passing ponyshows and carousels.

Light fluffy clouds of loveliness,

whirling round a warm cone of steel,

rising in the air (colours – optional)

held by a cuzzin of the old oak tree

Essence

There’s something different

in the chocolate wafer i enjoy

with my cup of tea

Just beyond the layer of chocolate

its like a host of bees have been playing

creating perfect hexagons in the wafers

Not too sticky, and not too sweet

smell passing the nose

wafts of honey with each individual chomp

The Answer Squash

#promptuarium #poemcrazy #napowrimo #day18

I

Sweltering heat on Mediterranean shores

quenching relief required

up in the trees lies a solution allied with

aqua cool and clear

sensational on a summers day

help yourself to a glass or two

II

Oranges, Lemons, Blackcurrants

just the job on a hot sunny day

something sweet and juicy to

cool off while out of the hot summer sun

sweet and juicy – and with ice

quite refreshing

III

Sports stars take a break in the halves

quenching their thirst and keeping

units of water up – to keep cool

as they run around the

sporting arena – football, tennis, or athletics, without it its

hell out there.

Picnic

#writeclub #woods

Teddy bears picnic (Pic from stock art by inky)

I

Pay close attention

if you go down to the woods today, you

could spot something furry

noshing away on honeycomb

its carved away

carefully from a nearby tree

II

Pears and Apples

in

close proximity are

nice accomplishments

if our furry friends want something to

chomp on

III

Placed on a blanket

its easy to see

cuddly and furry teddies in their

natural habitat….sharing a spot with

insects and birds, enjoying the sweet stuff

collected

Jam

#Socs #Fridge

Stream of Consciousness Saturday Banner

The seal popped

The jar opened

The flavours released

sweetened fruit held in suspension

spread over hot buttered toast

sensations – smell sight and taste – heightened

Warm strawberry tastes

Wild , sweet and welcoming

Tasted with every bite

The rest of the flavours – locked in the jar

kept in a place with the polar bears

for tomorrows crumpet feast

Piggy Pink

#CYW #Piggypink

Pink Piggy Cakes

Pink piggies like the ones in the farm

on a plate with instant charm

really tasty with their marshmallow noses

krafty icing with a number of poses

perhaps you’d be worried – about poor mr pig

in fact – when i tell you – you might do a jig

news is – i can tell you – that no pigs come to harm

king of his field – is still sat in the farm

Peach

Autumn Red Peaches (Image by B.F Kirkham)

Picked from the trees in the hills of Asia

each fruit furry to the touch

and juicy with every bite – just watch out for the stone in the middle

can be eaten on its own, or with custard or cream

hot out of the oven – its wonderful in a pie or a flan

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!

Taste

I

Bitter, Salty, Sweet or Sour

Sensations landing on your tastebuds

What is that wonderful fruity flavour

It’s on the tip of your tongue

but you haven’t said it yet

II

Raspberry Jacket and Banana Shirt

with trousers and shoes to match

maybe it’s the height of fashion in the magazines

certainly makes you talk of the town on the shopping run

III

Country or Town

Suburbia or out in the sticks?

Cottage, Terrace, Mansion or Shed ?

Choice of Home – is down to you

but it’s not everybody’s cup of tea
