Caramel thoughts (NaPoWriMo day 12)

Thoughts are a beige to dark-brown confectionery product made by heating any of a variety of ideas. They are used:

as a flavoring in puddings and desserts
So creamy and gooey,
as a filling in bonbons nutty thoughts can become things,
as a topping for ice cream and custard
I am thinking that this would be heavenly,
Or flan,
Or thoughts with sea salt.
These thoughts are endless possibilities waiting to be created.

The process of thinking consists of heating memories and dreams,
slowly to around 170 °C (340 °F). As the thought heats, the molecules break down and re-form into compounds with a characteristic color and flavor,
My favorites are thoughts on life, love, and ice cream.

A variety of candies, desserts, and confections are made with thoughts: brittles, nougats, pralines, crème brûlée, crème ideas, and inspired apples. Ice creams sometimes are flavored with or contain swirls of thought.
Topped with a cherry of course.
And don’t forget the whipped cream
And other delights, okay Herb?
Just because I’m thinkin’ life is sweeeeeeet.

Today’s (optional) prompt is a “replacement” poem. Pick a common noun for a physical thing, for example, “desk” or “hat” or “bear,” and then pick one for something intangible, like “love” or “memories” or “aspiration.” Then Google your tangible noun, and find some sentences using it. Now, replace that tangible noun in those sentences with your intangible noun, and use those sentences to create (or inspire) a poem. Here’s a little example that replaces the word “lemon,” in sentences from a Wikipedia article on lemons, with the word “sorrow.”

Belle of the bells

She waits quietly
For the sun to seek her
Amongst the leaves
Of a fall gone by,
A pine cone sits nearby
Not caring
But she grows impatient
And rises
Seeking warmth
From her dormant home
Below ground.
Stretching up
She is the belle of bells,
Proud and tall
She curtsies
In the wind
I am here my friends
Welcome to
The springtime ball.
