Fay Slimm.





They say

Roan red twilight,
night-stained and greying
like dough-bread rye
drenched in mayonnaise

will create

Blackberry sky,
dark-ruffled and fluffed
like meringue pie
cut while wearing gloves

and when 

Wind beaten cloud, 
becomes pearl-hue slaked
like milk turned sour
means storm on the way.

They say.

      Wonderful words Fay, can I come to tea without the soured milk.


      • Fay Slimm.

        Tea with you dear Andy would be a real treat and you are very welcome to a cuppa any time my friend - without the soured milk of course.

      • Bella Shepard

        Your imagery is priceless! A sumptuous, mouthwatering meal, however I'll pass on the soured milk. I think I know what we'll be having for supper, great menu.

        • Fay Slimm.

          Ha ha - thanks so much Bella for dropping by for a read of my take on the night-sky I saw coming in a while back - - - it looked like a recipe as it changed cloud formation. So pleased it inspired your ideas for supper dear Bella.
