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.
I wait to be finished
so I can eat it all!
