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

    Oh I was standing on the Boardwalk at the Jersey shore waiting as the man filled up my cone with your beautiful pink cotton candy:) I could almost smell the salt and hear the roar of the sea:) Thank you for the memory!

      A favourite of the funfair in springtime, Denise along with toffee apples and fudge of all kinds….oooh, the sugar!
