Lemon Meringue Pie

#Napowrimo #Food #Character


when i was made

i promised a lot

zesty , light and zingy

fresh tasting lemon

cloudlike meringue

and a buttery biscuit base


Each spoonful


taking you off

to the greens of the med

where my fruit grew

and blue skies shone


Initial reactions –


till about the

third mouthful

when delightful flavour

became a toasty mess



eating the biscuit

before the lemon was

a bad idea

zingy toasty biscuit

needs more meringue

Orange Juice

Fresh from the brightest fruit on the tree

and bright as the sun it absorbed

Nature’s dose of energy for the morning

no additives required

Slightly nippy from its time in the fridge

but maintaining its zesty zing

wake up call for the taste buds

as vitamin C comes calling

Atomic Tangerine

#cyw #atomic #tangerine #fruit

A sensation

Thats what i guess you would call it

Out of the fruit

Many segments of zingy fruit

In a haphazard

Circular formation

Tangy on the tongue

as you bite on the segments

navigating your way to the juice

great explosions as the segments

empty their flavoured cargo

round the mouth

its like an orange – but some say they’re

nicer than that, and easier to peel

expect smiles around the fruit bowl when the kids get home

#CYW #Yellow-orange

Someone’s been mixing up the citrus again

the orange juice looks that little more….

what’s the word ? Zingy ?

and that’s before you took the cap off the bottle

Lifting the lid gives you a clue

to the origin of the brighter orange

there’s a zip of lemon, and the zest of lime

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

Laser lemon 🍋


#coloryourworld #cyw #laserlemon #laser-lemon

light beams travel cross the water 💦

as bright yellow lemons 🍋

release their wonderful flavour

through the corporation pop

in the tumbler

each drop 💧 releasing

the fresh flavour of summer.

perfect with the blue sky on green grass

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.

Mango Tango

#coloryourworld #cyw #mangotango


Maybe it was love at first sight

As the juice bar music 🎶 played on

A mango entered into a dance 💃

with a fruity little thing

a distant cousin of the orange 🍊

A whirlwind romance

creating something colourful fresh and zesty

in mister baristas mixing machine

Zesty yellow lemons 🍋

infuse a certain something, when

navigating the crispy coating of a cod or plaice

got to admit .. its fresh in flavour,

yes .. I will have some more!

zingy red chilli 🌶

is just the thing, when bringing out the flavour of 🍖

Note though, add too much and you can ruin a dish.

great Scott!  It brings the heat to a 🍛

yet without it, they always seem tame
