Laser Lemon

#Coloryourworld #Cyw #Laserlemon

Whatever you do

be careful with that zingy coloured fruit

as you carve through the peel for its zest

it’ll come back at you as fast as lightning

blink – and you’ll miss it as it flies headlong toward your eye

it’s a flavour that’ll make your tongue sing

and bring a tang to any fruit pie

but watch out – its a fruit that’ll fight back!

Zest

Zingy is how you might call it

each pore of the citrus fruits skin

holds a little bit inside

and as your figures begin to split

the fruit’s smell contained therein

escaping into the room

where it does reside

enhancing the flavour into which you’ve just bit

Chocolate Orange

Tap, and Unwrap

That’s how it goes

and a scent of orange

wafts up my nose

Scent – then a taste

of orange from oil

captured in chocolate segments

held in the foil

Dark light and White

Mixes of chocolate and zest

Melt in the mouth zing

A taste that’s the best

A lemon, sliced – at Food for thought, BASIC, Salford – B.F Kirkham 2017

 

The humble lemon,

like its siblings the orange and lime

each segment is full of cells just

bursting with juice

as the fruit knife cuts through the peel to the zesty core

each cell in its way bursts – releasing

fresh lemon zest into the air

while drops of lemon fall onto fresh marble

Yellow

Yellow

A Zesty colour

sign of the start of spring and summer

daffodils and daisies explode with colour

and marigolds make hay in the morning sun

Lemon sponge sits in the oven cooking slowly

for a farmhouse lunch –

Vanilla custard softly turning in a copper pan

as breakfast is served – a soft boiled egg

with toasted soldiers and yellow butter.
