I Am Making Marshmallow Clouds For You

Updated on November 10, 2010

Yes Real As The Nose On Your Face

You have seen those wonderful marshmallow bags sitting on the shelf

They look so good

They want to jump out at you

It is time to have some fun

Buy a couple of bags of marshmallows

Three or four if your real daring

Bring them home and don't tell dad

He will think you are off your rocker

When you tell him what you have planned

So can you keep a secret

I have captured the spice that makes life so great

Yes you put marshmallows on the map

They have such simple beauty of pure white

Now they come in a rainbow of colors which is something really neat

I have seen the gigantic ones and the minature and tiny

One bite and you are not sure exactly what you ate

A few more bites and you have eaten one more sweet treat

I like them in my hot chocolate

Floating all around until they melt

Other people add them to their ice cream

I thought of something different

I take them out of the bag and shake them loose

Sometimes they stick together and just want to cling to one another

What I have planned is then take them one by one

Make a chain from end to end

Then add more marshmallows to make them very fluffy

With a light press one marshmallow sticks to another

They remind me of friends holding hand in hand

At first glance we all look the same

But deep inside we have very little to hide

We all have much to give and don't want to be left behind

So the more we expand and grow

We look like huge marshmallow clouds that lie still in the air

Until a strong breeze sets us free from our reality

We can float on by and are now lighter than the air that we breathe

We each have special gifts to help improve the world that some find so disheartening

It is up to us to change the things that make us feel so sad

We can sit and do nothing

We can complain every day and join others who curse the life that they live

I choose to be a cloud of marshmallows that may just be filled with lots of sugar

I may never be noticed for the good that I do

You can hold me in your hand or put me on a stick

On hot days I will melt

You can squish me and I will bounce back

Unless you pull at my sides and I slowly fall apart

I have a heart of gold and my imagination is unlimited

If you give me a chance I can be your life long friend

So look up and see the clouds that line the sky

You might just see one of marshmallows

Reach up high and you can also join me in life

To be not just another cloud in the sky

Be something very unique

That many people would say it is not possible

You and I know different

Because we have been there and know what makes us tick

We are never just a marshmallow just plain and white

We are all the creative energy that is used to make everything nice

      Acaetnnna You ever wonder how many marshmallows you can put in your mouth at once?I won't say I have tried but I have thought about it.For some strange reason I want to spell marshmallows-Marshmellows It looks better in my mind.I guess it is one of those words that just doesn't look right.Have your next marshmellow on me(haha).Thanks for making me laugh.

      What a brilliant idea. I love marshmallows and the way you have used them to write your hub is brilliant. Well done as always Dream On.
