Ham!

Linda’s prompt for #Socs is Ham! To join in or read some

fantastic responses click 🔜here🔙

I once laughed til I cried

over a song about ‘spam’.

Was surprised when given a book

Called ‘Green eggs and ham’.
I was thrilled when cooked

Chips, beans and ham,

for the first time,

by a visiting man. *wink wink*.
You never know what form

memories will take,

or how we inadvertently

nudge them awake.
A smell of lavender

Reminds me of Gran,

reading the rhymes… you guessed it

From green eggs and ham.

The taste of pig does it for me

It rumbles my stomach

until i fill it with tea….

Anyone for a sandwich?

A whimsical ditty … My husband listened (as they do) and said “You do know you’re weird… dont you”?

Comments welcomed and responded to promptly.

A Ballet of Books.

image

Words I read dance on my tongue
Library books join in the fun.
A myriad of majestic lust
Move in a flurry of mite dust.

Turning pages straightening spines,
Composure coreographed in lines.
Come watch the Pas de deux
Girls Pirruette in clasic tutu.

A library putting on a ballet
Watched by books in the alley.
It began with the arabesque
Pointe at librarians desk.

They Gathered all in croisè
Danseur with a grande jetè
Prima ballerina took a bow
Books that dance holy cow.

Silence Please.

She shushed me as the door slammed,

My arms full of books.

People peered above their specticles,

Gave me dirty looks..

She wagged a silent finger and 

pursed her lips tight.

When I slipped to the carpet

And toppled off the light.

My card was marked at the library door,

When a cough sent bubblegum

To skid across  the parquet floor.

Her sole was stuck fast 

As I staggered past.

just to round the debacle off

I snorted as I laughed.

Her teeth you couldn’t fail to miss

As the librarian delivered an Almighty hiss…

and pointed to the quote   

A Ducks Search For A Valentine

Sandhill Crane chick

“Where is it? quick me Valentine, quick, quick, got to find it! I know it somewhere.”
Said Doris duck.

She searched high and low in the stream,
for a Valentine  to fulfill her dreams.
Shook her tail and waddled far and wide
Until no place was left for it to hide.

What it looked like she didn’t  care,
She  wanted one from anywhere.
That Valentine she’d heard about,
It made big people flounce and pout.

Alas she was deemed to fail
For Valintines had no tale…
He had no beak for her to peck
And he had the shortest neck.

So to the pond she waddled fast
With her sibblings, home at last.
Munching worms with her Drake,
Fluffing their tails out on the lake.

Was your true love under your nose?
Did you look to hard but failled to see what was next to you?
Or just maybe you couldn’t give a diddly doo dah… let me know leave a word… try and keep it somewhat clean ;)😇

This link takes you to the Valentines party join in it’s for the whole weekend!

Just my cup of tea.

tea

My table is laced and set for tea,
Come on in you will see.
A magnitude of things to read
Step right up and take my lead.

First you make yourself a brew
Have a cake a biscuit or two .
Find a corner in which to sit,
Settle down and read for a bit.

We have music and voice
There is pleanty of choice.
Story, fact , flash and rhyme
You will have a whale of a time.

If you enjoyed it in here,
Leave a comment be a dear.
When you go don’t slam the door
keep popping in for a little more.

Thank you and I was pleased of the company.

A Nod to Poe.

image

At waters edge in caverns deep,
He wandered in repose.
Seeking of his one true love,
Through moon’s latent glows.

Leaving wake upon wake,
Over sea’s far and wide.
When a mermaid swept him
Off on the ebb of a tide.

In honour of Edgar Allan Poe born 19th January 1809
