Raspberry Cheesecake

Today the Wednesday Challenge on Weekly Prompts is: Neighbours. Please go and visit their fabulous site by clicking >> Here
One of my nearby ‘Neighbours’ happens to be the “Moorabool Valley Chocolate Cafe”

Our table and my “treats” … Frankie getting his back patted.

Frankie waiting for his “treats” and waiting for me to finish this poem

Raspberry Cheesecake

The afternoon is warm and sunny

I say to Frankie

“We should go for a stroll”

He immediately runs to his lead

And eagerly shakes his head

Ok, we will go to the

Moorabool Valley Chocolate Cafe**

Excitedly, he scratches at the front door

He knows where we are heading

A special country-style venue

Close to home

Near the outskirts of town

Situated inside a horse agistment property

We settle for a table on the verandah

Frankie loves the attention he receives

I love the homemade cakes

My self-indulgent treats

Were a scrumptious raspberry cheesecake

And a delicious cappuccino

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.
