The lamp light sounds like jazz.

Purple feels like soft lavender.

The future tastes like sweet honey.

Moonlight smells like deodorant.

A bee’s buzz is the color yellow.

Pop music is the color baby pink mixed with baby blue and purple.

A viola’s sound tastes like a chocolate strawberry.

The sun tastes like sour lemon candy.

A bee is the color black.

Leaves taste saltless.

The number 23 feels warm and fuzzy.
