we ate cake, chocolate cake
with thick chocolate icing on

plus the usual buns
with one left ready
for today with coffee

each a different colour
which I have saved
washed the little white

all stashed in the proper place
in that dish on the kitchen shelf
above the table

i tidied it all a few weeks back
yesterday I won a writing challenge

did not mean to
I just wanted to tell it
how it is

later I attempted to trim
the hazel tree and succeeded
