Candyfloss Poem by Gita Ashok


Rating: 3.9

Whenever we go
to an amusement park or fair,
I’m eagerly on the lookout
for the candyfloss sold there.

The light pink candyfloss –
I just can’t stop marveling
at how skillfully it’s made
to look like a pink fluffy cloud at sunset.

I’ve always been wanting
to touch a soft fluffy cloud
and candyfloss is truly
a good substitute for a cloud.

I love the blissful feel of it
in my mouth where -
it melts within moments
into sweet nothingness.

Whenever I eat candyfloss,
I hope I can freeze time and make it last –
But Alas!
All good things must come to an end.

So I wait for another trip
to the amusement park or fair
so that I can feast my eyes and taste buds
on the candyfloss sold there.

Sweet Candyfloss it is to read and feeling eating the candy itself while doing so!

At the age of 74, my mind traveled to decades earlier and I enjoyed the look and taste of candyfloss which retains its attractions to the young and old even today. Nice poem.
