Treasure Island

Vera Sidhwa


Cotton Candy and Clouds


Airplane please fly through,
The pink and fluffy, fluffy blue.
Oh, I can taste the savory stuff.
You're flying through a floating puff.

They're too good, these clouds I know.
The pink and blue in sunshine show,
That this sky candy, I must eat.
It's taste no other food can beat.

I wanted to lean out of the plane,
Eat cotton candy outside my window pane.
Now I suddenly saw that the pink and blue,
Were clouds and not candy too.

But now the plane landed,
And I ran to the counter,
Of the airport candy shop,
And gorged on the cloudy looking,
Blue and pink candy.

I love,
Cotton candy and clouds.

    Hmmm, a binger of sorts, of candy puffed up and blue.
    Uncontrollabe desires for things that attract you or the things you have
    set your mind to. (Report) Reply

Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
