Gobstoppers. Inspiring.

As a writer, I find inspiration everywhere. Lately, I've been reaching out to my Facebook fans, seeking words for story fodder. Feeling festive, I recently requested candy-verb combinations, to which Sharron Cruz offered "Gobstoppers" and "inspiring." Thanks, Sharron. You've inspired the following poem.


Gobstoppers, Twizzlers, and Raisinets
A quiet treat to accompany the show
The screen so vast and I so small
Awed by stories unfolding at break-neck speeds
Inspiring me little by little
Though I was completely unaware
