"As my Third Place Choice, a haiku with striking color contrast via black clouds and pink cotton candies (at least that’s the color I perceive), although nowadays I believe cotton candy can be just about any color. Having said this, another reason for choosing this one is because of its 3 “l” sounds in line one, carried over to its double “c” sounds in line two, which lets it roll off the tongue nicely. I also can easily visualize the cotton candies sticking to one another, and looking like puffy clouds."
