Cotton Candy

Crafted from wisps of warm sugar

out of the machine it forms

taking the shape of a cloud

the cloud rises on the warm air

on some occasion, it has to be caught in the

nick of time, before it floats off on its own

Could there be a treat sweeter than this

as the candyman catches the cloud

numbers of children watch as its

delivered on the stick, all

yelling they want one – its such a sweet favorite

In other words – Footprints on the beach

in response to https://patriciasplace.me/2019/07/17/in-other-words-the-beach/

beach sea seashell

three sets of feet – Walking on the Sand

Rendezvous with candy floss

Sweet stuff acquired – but only two pairs of feet

Smaller pair of toes, treated by Big Feet

To a Piggyback

Cotton candy clouds

as the sun says peek a boo

over multi coloured high rises

for an hour or two

Skies turn into confectioners delights

as cotton candy clouds turn from white to blue

with occasional shades of pink or yellow

 

Another cloud poem

Cotton candy

Salford 9th April 2017

a sweet poem for the color your world challenge by inkdropk

#poetry #confectionery #cyw #coloryourworld #cottoncandy #candyfloss

 

whispy wires of candy

softly rising into a soft tornado

gathering in pace as it goes

 

sensational sugar collides

against the  tornado catcher

fallen to be reused again

 

whisps gather pace

collecting speed and sugar

as a sweet cirrus begins to grow

 

floating sweet dreams

fly high in the air

caught by the ice cream man

 

man looking in has to use great skill

to gather the coloured pink cloud

to create smiles on waiting faces
