Sugar – Poetry 101 Rehab challenge


She knew

He was distracted


Staring into space


She loved him

Fastening her apron

Reaching for the jar

She smiled

He loved her too

On Monday

Pulling apples from his tree

She made Apple Crumble

Spicing it with cloves and cinnamon

Just like his school dinners

On Tuesday

She baked

Sicilian Lemon cake,

First tasted on honeymoon

twenty years ago

On Wednesday

Golden treacle pudding

with custard

just like his mother taught her

On Thursday

Shortbread fingers

Eaten by the loch

where they discovered

blossoming parenthood

On Friday

The vanilla scent of

New York Baked Cheese Cake

Welcomed him home

By Saturday

He was no longer distracted

They celebrated

With tiramisu

  1. My mouth is watering when reading this great culinary piece! I can’t not love anything where there are cakes and a loch mentioned (I’m a Scotophile and lover of sweet things…) Now will you excuse me, I’m going to get me some Tiramisu.


    1. Thank you Mara for taking the time to write your lovely comment, it is always so encouraging to get feedback.

      Now.. where did I put that mascarpone! I’d send you some but it messes up the keyboard!
