For Day 7 of the #introtopoetry course we were asked to write something about the flavour of something.  I’ve chosen my favourite ice-cream.  The ice-cream is made locally to us and, to me, encapsulates summer.

Blackcurrant ice-cream
The flavour of summer
Bursting on the tongue and
Melting in the heat
Faster than I can eat it
Dripping down the cone
Oozing over my fingers
Sticky sweet heaven
A favourite indulgence

I also shortened it into a Haiku –

Blackcurrant ice-cream
Flavour bursting on the tongue
Sticky sweet heaven
