A fridge too far….

Lashings of blueberry conserve

Rain lashing on the window pane.

Luscious sumptuous late summer fruits

Raspberries fresh from the cane.


Limes lingering for mocktails

Sauvignon blanc chilling on ice.

Swede broccoli and carrot

For roast lamb supper tonight.


Leftovers for lunchtime tomorrow

No fresh salad but mushrooms galore,

As the weather signals the move to autumn

It is Hot Chocolate with whipped cream we adore.

This is for d’Verse poetics where we were encouraged to consider the contents of our fridge….it took a while and was almost a fridge too far….hence the title….

The rain did lash the window panes today, the River Lune was very fast flowing with what looked like whole trees heading out to sea….crumpet weather…I did stop and have a Hot Chocolate on the way home from the University.

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the title! 🙂 It’s been fun to chill out with so many folks and see their take on this prompt. It is a bit of an oddity this prompt — but I love to throw out the oddball curve.
    Great pics too! Refrigerator inside-decor does indeed change with the seasons. 🙂

  2. Somehow… I don’t really understand the workings of my mind… your title reminded me of the gag an old comedian had about a dentist placing dentures on a plate of liver and onions, and then telling it sad, sad stories. To make the bridges over the liver cry.

    By the way… I loved your poem!

    1. I can’t remember if it was the Swallows and Amazons, or the famous five, who always had lashings of ginger beer….or maybe I made that up???? Who knows, another job for google later today..XX
