Poetry Prompts Day 7 – OctPoWriMo 2016 – Tasty

the memory of eating with my hand
of fish and I have to take the bones off
when I first tasted wheat beer, a good quaff
the first meal that I cooked – that was so grand

when the son first cooked, that wasn’t planned
he cooked a mean curry and boy, I coughed
the memory of eating with my hand
of fish and I have to take the bones off

when I cooked something with cream, it was bland
bacon and ham sandwich, the lot we troughed
and sometimes, Houston we have a lift-off
but we always go back to where we land
the memory of eating with my hand*

Three Cheers to the Newly Weds!

Here’s to the newly weds

As we opened a bottle of fizzy

Wine impressed with its delicate

Fresh nose giving way to tangy apples

Creamy butteriness with good acidity

May they stay as sweet as honey

Seasoned with love and devotion

 

We also have some herbal, smokey salmon

With a piquant tartare sauce and garlic bread

Followed by saftig strawberries and ginger biscuits

Three cheers, here’s to many years of togetherness!
