Magpie Tales Photo Prompt 55: Not Quite Lemonade

sweet and sour

the sweet red sauce on bananas 
at the Chinese buffet is redundant. 
like making lemonade from lemons. 

yet, our casting simple fare as gourmet
became a Gordian Knot, of sorts. 

and messy.

  1. knot an easy thing to consume! steven

  2. One bold stroke solved the problem. I hope not at the Chinese buffet.

  3. ...so messy. - Crazy pic and poem!

  4. Totally off the subject of your poem, and more about missing having cats, I do know a couple of middle-aged cats in Baltimore that a friend is fostering. The older ones can be hard to place and I can get you in touch with them if you're interested. I go to Virginia quite often and, if you do get them, I can bring them up to you.

  5. Messy just depends, in my book.

    Screw the Chinese buffet, though! ;-)
