Christmas Confections

Christmas Confections Visions of candy canes, swirling red and white stripes, Pirouette through our dreams spinning Christmas delights; Sugar sticks and sugar plums tweak our imaginations When bright store windows show off marshmallow creations ~ ~ ~ ~ Truffles and toffee nestled near gumdrops red and green Spun sugar delights fit for a queen; Peppermint bark, only seen once a year, Graces gingerbread houses when in villages they appear ~ ~ ~ ~ Raspberry candies filled with gooey, sweet centers Hold hands with ribbon candy - childhood remembers; Creations of fudge draw our attentions Chocolate and maple, vanilla nut confections ~ ~ ~ ~ Sugar and cinnamon coats nuts of every variety When coal lumps of licorice invite stocking anxiety; Pralines, nonpareils, cocoa snowballs, chocolate mints Sour stars and lollipops leave a holiday footprint ~ 11-11-21 Contest: November December Sponsor: Caren Krutsinger

Hi Marikate! Thank you so much for your delightful feedback. I think I put on at least five pounds writing this one!! I have to give credit to the soup and all of you for challenging me to reach for new writing heights. It is an amazing journey to learn new formats, be inspired by the poems, read and share insights! You have such an open heart and deep desire to create I know that you will experience the same. Sending you blessings and a hug.

Gina, thank you! For me the integral definition of Christmas is articulated in the word "sweet" - sweet Savior, sweet greetings, sweet decorations, sweet family and friends and, of course, a candy store of sweet delicacies! Thank you for coming with me down this lane of memories that each of these goodies remembers! Sweet blessings and a hug to you sweet friend! Much love.
