Ever felt stressed?
The feeling definitely
isn’t the best.

If you spell it out
it doesn’t help
the feeling spreading

But spell it backwards
and what you find
blows your mind:
it’s ‘desserts’!

When you’re feeling down
you can turn things around
with some sweets
or a treat.

Some chocolate,
could ease the pain
some cake or ice-cream, too

cookies or pie
piled high
with lovely, delicious
whipped cream.

Sprinkles and icing
marshmallows and more
chocolate chips,
cookie dough,
coconut bits like snow.

With a full belly
and a mouth full of sugar
you’re sure to feel better

The Gingerbread House

I’m thinking about
my gingerbread house
it’s the only thing on my mind…

with its gingerbread roof
and gingerbread walls
held together with icing like glue.

It will have a front door
trimmed with coconut
and a pathway lined with gumdrops,

small candy balls
will dot the roof
sugary icicles reaching down.

It will have chocolate squares for shutters
and M & Ms on the walls
with red cherry twizzlers for gutters.

Cotton candy fluffs will serve as trees
ribbon candy for windows
and a layer of sugar like snow.

In anticipation
I wait to be finished
so I can eat it all!
