I thought I'd look back to what I was doing writing-wise in February a few years back. In 2014, I took part in Tabatha Yeatts' "Directory of Imaginary Poems" project.
The New Peppermint Bay
Come sail your good ship to the all
new Peppermint Bay Hotel and Resort.
Peppermint Bay is proud to have been
named Lush Magazine's "Ultimate
Vacation Destination" for the year 2014.
No lollipops, bon-bons, or lemonade here!
Exotic native-dressed waitstaff will serve you
locally distilled mango, banana, fig, coconut,
or, our signature Peppermint Bay schnapps.
And for those who "harbor" fond memories
of the original Peppermint Bay, we also carry
devil's food cake and caramel flavors, too!
After dancing the night away to the music
of Cracker Jack's Steel Drum Band enjoy
a relaxing dip in an all natural bay water
pool, then hop into our boat-shaped beds
...and dream away!

This poem wasn't the one I submitted to Tabatha for the Directory, that one you'll find here.
Peppermint Bay was originally featured in this song sung by Shirley Temple:
