Poem Idea - Candy Canes

christmast-dress-2003-225x300

Candy canes are usually for Christmas and Winter holidays…when you have children, they become treats all year round. However, when you see one, you remember the connection to childhood…yours, your child’s, or the neighbor’s…however, you link the love of the sugary substance with better times, simpler times, good times.

Describe the colors…the swirls…the depths of the hues as they rangle around the cane…Describe the tastes…the sweet, sugary, high-energy, off-the-wall, bouncy goodness that accompanies the treat…Describe the behavior of the children…the excitement that mounts…the rush rebounds again and again…the crash crumbles until the next bit of stripped candy is tasted…

Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
