Poetry Magnum Opus

Recommended Posts

Granddad made a creamy porridge.
We liked the way it bubbled, plopped -
how the flames tickled round the pan.
He picked berries from allotments.
'An imperial splendour,' he said. 'See how
they sag and leak'.
He stirred in a spoonful of honey.

Mum buys frozen. Leaves the berries
overnight in tupperware to 'breathe.'
Our microwave heats the porridge
in two minutes. It hums like bees.
She did pot a blueberry bush,
gathered a teaspoon of fruit. It died
one frosty Christmas.

Yum, the first stanza is a poem in its self.     The second demonstrates an evolution without judgement.  

I'm guilty of cutting corners from the very basics that I learned from my mother and grandmother but certain things you just have to go back to the basics. The microwave is a God send though in this busy world when time is an issue.

True Tink. Truth be told I use the microwave, and have been known to burn a pan on a cooker, and my blueberry harvest was less than ten berries!

all the best

Nice work, Phil. In my own experience, this takes me back to the days of making popcorn in a pan over the stove. These days we just put the bag in the microwave.
