Slush Puppies Reflection

Cold Ice That Would Soothe

“Is your tongue blue or green?”

The kids in my neighborhood would scream.

It often looked like mush.

I shared one with my first crush.

Turn your lips red, green, or blue.

On a hot summer day,

It would soothe.

The face of a puppy was enticing.

The flavored cold ice sufficing.

Lime Rickey was delicious.

However, none were nutritious.

Blue Raspberry was my fav.

Ah to remember!

The childhood crave!

    Nice job. Long time ago for me for those things but I liked popsicles and NEVER blue ones. If it isn’t chocolate it’s no good 😛😋🤣🤣

    Cherish the people around you because they make life worth living. Make the most of every day and live it to the fullest because we never know how much time we have left. I wish you good health, a bright future and a happy life. May you always be surrounded by love and support. 🙏🙏🙏

  • Whether homemade or store-bought, yummy memories.

  • Oh I love slushies! It's been like more than 25 years since I had one. Can't even recall my favourite flavour, lol. Loved your poem!
