Moon Candy


Walking at night

With the moon

Hanging like

A Pinata

Above my head

If I had a stick

I could hit it

And candy would rain

Down on me

Like confetti

Moon candy

Nobody ever had any

Moon candy

I would be the first

And could get rich

And famous

But I had no stick

  • Comment from author about the poem: I wrote this poem back in February. Kind of a metaphor of missed opportunities, or maybe of the impossible dream.

    all things are possible
    esp' ecially
    in our dreams

    want some candy?

  • FredPeyer

    Thanks so much everybody! I think no matter what we should keep on dreaming! And Robert, I guess I am getting a little bit too old for eye candy. But like a beautiful painting, I can appreciate a beautiful lady.

      Other the from the sad part that you did not have a stick I liked it very much. I felt some innocence on it. When I was a kid I always dreamed about being left locked inside a candy store and had to spend the night there eating all those delicious candy. My first job I was only thirteen and when I've got my first paycheck what was cash I run to the candy store and bought a basket full of candy. I ate so much candy that day that for a long time after I could not see candy without feeling sick. And the dream never came back.

        You are right, there is an underlying tone of innocence, of the dream to hit it big with something, no matter what. But also of the knowledge that it is not that easy. A lot of times something is missing, like a stick.

        If you find a stick, Archimedes says you could move the planet closer to the moon and get your moon candy.

          Thanks Aa, but it would have to be a real big stick!
