Salford, 2nd February 2020

Totally encompassed in this little parcel

out of nowhere,

a sausage or two

sends sensations to the tastebuds

totally making them wild with each chew

inquisitive minds wonder – what’s in it that’s so delicious ?

eat up! and you’ll find out!

Toast

Triangular wonder

cooked by the heat of a thousand suns

in a silver toaster

warming and turning

soft white (or maybe brown) bread

golden and toasty

Yellow butter melts

as it lands on the surface

sinking slowly at the sound of the pop

of a jar opening and the imminent arrival

of the strawberry jam.

Brambles

Born on a spikey berry bush

Purple / pink fruit bursting with flavour

bursting with juice – pressed to the touch

cooked down in a pan – to a tasty mush

turned into jelly – a taste to savour

spread over bread – or sometimes toast

kids enjoy the tastes so much

Breakfast time they enjoy them the most

Honeycomb Ii

Manchester, 11th august

 

#beeinthecity #manchester #hunnypot

 

six sided structure

created by worker bees

for the colony

 

sleeping in their nest

little bees dream of honey

from flowers next door

 

Travelling over air

homing pigeons cannot beat

worker bees radar

 

treasures collected

from inside the flower head

create a sweet thing

 

flavour from pollen

transferred to golden slices

by the hunnypot

The Austerity Breakfast

Thin

(you’ll either love it or hate it)

Lightly boil two eggs and place aside

Put two pieces of bread in your toaster

Once toasted, slice into soldiers and smear with Marmite / Vegemite

you won’t need the butter – and save on the salt
