Tonight

Tonight

The evening has ripened

With the kiss of an adolescent night.

And I sail away

inhaling a breath

That whispers coral dreams

Into my soul.

The snares of the dusk

Shall smother all loneliness

when the October breeze

Spells syllables of serenity

Into the ripples of the river;

And my fascination

Fails to cease-

Tonight.

Squishy marshmallows

Squishy marshmallows

Sweet white marshmallows. Jane so loved to pop them into her mouth all at once. She had seen them when she had been to the candy storeĀ  that morning. Then of course she threw a tantrum and her mother was forced to buy them for her.
Now as she opened the pack of the snowy little things, she felt she heard a whisper. It was just the squishy marsh mallows of course. She took one of them and popped into her mouth. As she bit into it, she hoped that the fleshy taste was just another Halloween flavour.
