"Blowing Bubbles" by Giuseppe Magni‘Bubbles’ and Other Poetry by Mike Dashiell The Society January 31, 2017 Beauty, Culture, Poetry 1 Comment Bubbles I swish the stick To watch a spread of bubbles gleam; Free and delightful they float Almost a dream. This pristine orbs, A fragile yet audacious batch Seem hopeless until they reveal A rainbow patch. They move away And occupy a placid realm To demonstrate the physics of Cohesive film. I notice soon A strange geography revealed, A surface spin of nations or Plasmatic field. Expectancy That this existent play will stop Makes any conclusion forgone These orbs must pop. As lovely eyes They dare not recognize or wink Because if excited they’re gone Quick as a blink. I stand and watch Their glorious defeat, yet one That wanders, hesitates then bursts Succeeds to stun.

Initial choices fashion what proceeds, Though any open line is tillable, An indication of respect it needs To accent each deserving syllable. The path in sync as marching troops and bands, With dual rhythm and a steady pace, Its basic structure validates and stands To give a worthy rhyme resulting grace: If not as musical as songs of birds, It minds its business with sufficient words Michael Dashiell lives in central Indiana.
