midway through these trees,


this full moon
smells like cotton
candy caramel corn sway,
and the way
the top of the ferris wheel
tilted us toward

written for Kelly’s awesome prompt over at dVerse. come play!

    Almost haiku like in its brevity but you packed so many scents, and sights, into this. The fair is filled with them! Love the tilting toward heaven too…

    Love the idea of the full moon having the scent of cotton candy! Moment of bliss captured well 🙂
    Beautifully executed.

    This is my favourite of today’s offerings, I think – short, perfect capture of the moment, the senses (not just smell).

  10. Mary says:

    Yes, this is the smell I imagine the moon would have as well! Smiles.

  11. thanks for the whirl and tilt toward heaven

  12. Ferris wheels
    sing songs
    of high..
    fear is
    all i taste..
    cotton candy
    floats higher safer..:)

    The carnival backdrop is so alive with olfactory possibilities, yes you packed this tiny piece like a master sausage maker, stretching the skin with spicy goodness; but still, naughty me, I wonder how the moon would smell from behind an outhouse or a sewage plant; smile.

  14. This little verse smells wonderful!
