As we near the end of winter we are enjoying some unseasonably warm weather. Today it was nearly 70 degrees! Warm enough to go out with sweatshirts instead of coats. And for sure warm enough to bust out the bubbles for the first time this year. My son didn’t waste any time getting his “bubble” and I have to say, his technique has improved since last fall!  The sun was warm and fresh and I can smell life in the air. Looking forward to the spring season.


Blowing Bubbles

~ Carried on a soft whisper
Of a breeze
Little bubbles float aloft,
Delighting little children
With such simple pleasures;
A kaleidoscope of colours
Swirl around in circles
In rich fluidity
Of amethyst
And jade,
And gold;
Sadly, soon
Erased out of existence.

Lips tremble,
But smiles
Return again
As soon as
Lips are pursed,
A gentle breath
Gives birth
To another
Gem of wonder –

A Bubble,
A Child’s rainbow globe;
Tenuous, momentary,
But a dream
Of beautiful fragility
That captivates
A sense of wonder.

Generations come and go
But this thrill will never die.
