Weekend Writing Prompt #40 – Afternoon Tea

First, a quick apology for being such a terrible, absentee blog hostess.  Life is just hectic at the moment.  I’m hoping that things will start to calm down over the next week or two.  Thanks for your patience, and happy writing! 🙂

A word and photo prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  Use the prompts separately or together.  It’s up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take one of the challenges below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.

    Hoping all is okay: here’s my entry for today.

    ~ Afternoon Tea ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~

    An allowance not spent on elevensies
    Found me nestled in a cafe that day
    The prices affordable, cheaper to pay
    Each cup was a mug full to the brim
    Rims overflowing with sweet leafy sin
    Not your regular loose tea leaves
    Or your regular tea bag
    Ordinary cha was to bland
    Normal chi was a drag
    The tea I order most frequently
    Every time I come in
    A pot of good old Rosie-Lee blended with extra sin

    Namaste 🙂
