Pink Sugar

Entwined as vines,
candy-floss lovers embrace
linking lips, hearts, woolly sweaters.

Theirs is heady,
pungent as mead
on a floral summer’s day.

They silhouette
as yin and yang:
a perfected symbiosis.

Full lips pout,
reach for never-ending kisses
laced with bubblegum tangs.

An elevated love –
two fierce lionesses
protect each other:
faithful, loyal
as steely handshakes.

Prideful colours paint,
bedeck blank canvas,
creating life, heat, vibrancy;
passion flows in multi-hues –
a fluid colour palette
creating art,
daubs of futuristic truth.
