Hard to see through

Opaque

Opaque

On the whole – its hard to see through glass like this

Perhaps , that’s why, instead of windows – it’s used to produce

Antiques of the future – vases and chargers and such

Quaint – in the way the colours scatter through it

Unlike the light , captured by the spectrum of colour

Enjoyed by everyone who sees it – sat on the mantlepiece

Darn that table!

Uneven

The kitchen fairy has been at it again

pinching a footpad or two from the kitchen table

you notice their action

as little veg strive to become escape-peas

 

The family pooch is drooling

as table slips and slides

and silver surfaced platters

around the table ride

 

Turkey ready for serving

in oven it awaits

as peas, parsnips and carrots

roll about on the plate

 

But light hits our family chef

and gets him off the hook

sliding underneath the feet

a perfectly weighted cookbook

 

So table will be fixed for pud,

with a couple of little pads of wood

and pooch for now will have to enjoy his ball

and not the turkey that was saved from a fall.
