I think some of our most vivid memories can be formed around the taste of something. I was reminiscing recently about desserts I remember having as a child. Over time our taste for food changes as my poem this week illustrates.
Desserts past and present
Rhubarb and custard
Ice cream blocks in between wafers…
These are a few of my most hated desserts 🍨🧁 🍮
Pear and ginger yogurt
Strawberries and Ice cream with meringues
Some of my most loved desserts 🍧🥮🍓
Poem by Nick
If you would like to join me in writing a story, poem or description, there’s still time to have a go using the writing prompts below; in no more than 150 words in total.
I will publish each one in a themed post on my site over the next few weeks. (Subject to work being suitable for publication, is not offensive, abusive and does not contravene any laws in any way.)
I will also write something for each theme and hopefully there will be a number of writing styles to compare. Please send in work by the date listed with a written note giving me permission to publish your item on my site. I look forward to reading your work and letting others share your amazing stories.
So here are my writing prompts for a short story, poem or description.
To be published on 18th June, please send in by 16th June
