Here’s my poem to start you off. 🙂

Candy Fountain (Ethereal Asparagus)
by Anne Sikes

Candy Fountain


What a lovely thing it would be

To have a fountain that’s made of candy

Colorful sprinkles of pure sweet delight

Delicious to taste and a beautiful sight


But fountains are known for their sweet soothing sound

A candy one might jingle, clatter, and pound

You’d have to decide if it’s worth all the din

In my own opinion, it might do me in.

The Name That Abstract #13 is coming up next, if my internet will hold out through all this!  Having problems with it since yesterday.

  1. Candy Fountain

    It stands in the center of the room
    It has Chocolate cascading down from the top.
    We fill our plate with goodies, to coat in this melted delight.
    I can tell by all the faces in line, they hope this NEVER stops.

    While the Candy Fountain flows, everyone is having such fun.
    Can it really be all that melted Chocolate that has everyone wanting some
    Seems it doesn’t take much to make us forget our woes
    Just a Candy Fountain, with melted Chocolate, to make us smile from our
    lips to our toes.

    Candy Fountain

    A candy fountain? Really? That’s a joke.
    You must be kidding. Would an English bloke
    believe there’s such a fancy thing? Would Queen
    Elizabeth find tastes of candy keen?
    Come now. You’re toying with reality.
    Those minty drops and chocolate rivers, free
    to me? I couldn’t help but to indulge…
    but I’d best be prepared. They’d make me bulge!

    Ethereal Asparagus

    Ethereal asparagus exists
    in abstract paintings or on artists’ lists
    of fresh ideas. I have painted all
    I know, and need now an original
    new thought. Asparagus upon a back-
    ground purple, turquoise-blue, and black —
    Aha, that’s it. My fellow artists would
    not think asparagus could taste this good.
