Rice Paper

I realise rice paper isn't very exciting to jaded, world-weary adults such as ourselves, but remember the first time you came across it? Beautifully incomprehensible to a child - paper you can eat. An irresistible invention, especially the sweet variety. You probably ate loads, just like I did.

I used to write on it using food dye and a cocktail stick and then swallow the messages.

The first time I ate rice paper was when I spent a summer in Japan. The wrapper on the candy melted like magic in my mouth! I did. I ate loads.

Black Boxed in and thanks for the tip off on the Splinters poetry blog.

Swallowing words = hidden meanings.
