Well, summer is back, with a vengeance! However, the main attraction this week is that amazing moon up in the sky, shining so brightly over all below.
One poetry prompt site, IGWRT, has even selected the blue moon for its focus with the stipulation that the “blue moon” term, itself, not be used in the poem. This is where the prompt led me!
SUNDAY SIGNATURE DESSERT!
It haunts me,
sitting up there
like a dish of blanc mange
my mother’s favourite dessert.
Vanilla flavoured delight
so savoured by my seven siblings
to me it remained
a dishful of untempting molten mess—
no Eton for me!
Each weekly dinner
I only gazed at the creamy pudding,
carefully selecting each of the ten red berries
resting atop this serving—
a little orb planted for each family member—
a treat so sweet!
