How Sweet It Is

A STAR BURST through the night, sparking toward a new GALAXY, landing in a Lapland country. SWEDISH FISH picked up their speed, feeling something was not quite right, swimming prettily away. Wolves began to howl, sensing a ROCKY ROAD ahead, wondering if they would feed their young tonight. The stillness of the night dropped to LEVEL ZERO. In a hundred years, this country had not experienced this level of quiet BAR NONE. SNOW CAPS sat in wait, listening, without breathing. This MILKY WAY STARBURST had indeed claimed the night. Rats halted in the middle of their scurries and SKITTLES, A prairie dog dared to SNICKER, breaking the silence, but only once, and it was a short-lived SNICKER. You would have guessed it might have broken the tension, but it did not. A full moon, mountains, and A lake full of fish, held hostage by a STAR BURST from another GALAXY. Who would have guessed?

Very ingenious... (it's not easy to weave all of those into a poem that makes sense)!

I had a bunch of fun with this; I went down the list of contests today and poked around until I got something entered in all the ones that seemed easy. This one was by far the most fun.
