[Poetry] The Night I Went To The Carnival

I remember the laughter of children,
Racing under neon lights,
And the scent of nearby hydrangeas,
Permeating through the night.

I remember the taste of cotton candy,
Melting sugary sweet on my tongue,
And the apples swimming in caramel—
The carefree diet of being young.

I remember the view on top of the ferris wheel,
How time froze like under a spell,
I remember feeling untouchable in that moment,
And in that moment, all was well.

Written for summer poetry miracles, a prompt over on Instagram. Hope you guys like it! Also, happy August—am I the only one still in denial that we’ve already reached August this year?

  1. Hi,Jade. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful and well penned poem filled with nostalgia and memories of childhood. The poem allowed me to relive the excitement and awe visiting local fairs. I was in heaven if I remember correctly. It was such a long time ago. Have re-blogged. Have a wonderful day. Goff
