cotton candy colors always made me happy....

I like to watch the sugar spin

like a top

I like the scent of cotton candy

At the cotton candy stand

along the boardwalk

there are candy apples, carmel corn

and salt water taffy

but I wish to

take a taste of yesterday

sights and tastes and scent and sound

twirling the paper stick around

adding all the colors of the rainbow

pinks, blues, orange, yellows

sticky fingers

at the fair

eating cotton candy

nothing like it anywhere

spun sugar happiness

always eat it on the ferris wheel

spinning around and around

fingers full of cotton candy

sticky giggles

bubble gum flavors

color my day

with cotton candy

let the kid inside you


and don't ever grow

up enough to

ever forget...
