A Taste of Gold



“All that glisters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told…”
― William Shakespeare


Tis the season

to treat yourself a little

a lot


after all

you made it through another year

and what a year this one has been

for one and all

celebrate with a

Belgian chocolate and malt eclair

from Waitrose

pictured above

glittering with gold flecks

which are edible

and rather delicious

or so I witnessed

rather than tasted

as these were bought for

special guests

tis also the season to be giving

a little

a lot



who have made it through this year too

don’t worry about me

I may have missed out on tasting gold

but I had a bite of

the raspberry and rose eclair

from Waitrose

and if fortune has a flavour

it might just be that!


“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
