Pink sherbet

#CYW #Pinksherbet

Someone should really have told you

how zingy that pudding really is

every day you headed for the ice cream cart

rounding on this raspberry combo

but your face – after the initial taste of the raspberries

engaged into full on scrunch mode as your

tongue took on the individual taste

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
