Twittering Tales – Too much Water.

As he looked down, bundled up in his airtight space suit, he considered something his training seemed to omit. The sight of all that water rising on Earth made him regret having that large cup of tea.

Chalk it up to experience. He hoped he’ll make it back to the ship in time.

Multiple Word Prompt Poem – No appetite for Ebullience

This poem was inspired by the following word prompts:

No Appetite for Ebullience

I’m not feeling so Ebullient,

My ‘get up and go’, got up and went,

I’m searching for some clarity,

Or failing that a bit of hilarity

A laugh is worth its weight in gold,

At least that’s what I’m often told,

But I have lost my oomf and appetite,

My ambition lost without a fight,

However, there is always hope,

And I’m sure that I’ll survive and cope.

There’s always tomorrow, Just wait and see.

For now, I’ll relax and have a nice cup of tea.

Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge – I couldn’t survive without my Tea.

The Go Dog Go has posted their Tuesday writing prompt challenge, see below:

Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge: Tuesday, September 18

It is to write a poem about something you couldn’t survive without.

So here is mine:

 

TEA

I can survive pretty well without my phone

It doesn’t bother me to be all alone.

I can survive without watching T.V

but I can’t survive without my cup of tea,

for where there’s tea, there’s hope

As long as I’ve got tea, I can cope.

It helps me think and keeps me calm,

for me, there is no better balm.

So before I start to scream incessantly,

Please fetch me a nice hot cup of tea.

Oh, and I wouldn’t say no, for heaven’s sake,

to a nice big slice of delicious cake.

Picture of the Day – Cockington village

I am not being rude, it is honestly the name of a very pretty village near Torquay in Devon, England.

It is quite a popular spot for coach tours because it is so quaint. The village Smithy is still going strong with its Thatched roof. A number of cottages still have their traditional thatch. This view was taken from one of the tea gardens, where they serve the famous Devonshire Cream Tea.

Cream tea isn’t, like someone I know thought, Tea with cream in it (Yuck),

It is Tea served with Scones, Clotted cream and Jam. Clotted cream itself is a wonder. It is cream so thick you can spread it with a knife.

Nothing can quite compare to a lovely sunny day sitting in the tea garden in Cockington overlooking a duck pond eating scones with clotted cream and jam and enjoying a nice cup of tea.

I hope you enjoy this picture.
