Glistening orbs
Dance on air
Drifting skyward
Without a care

Iridescent spheres
Shimmering bright
Reflecting prisms
In the sunlight

Luminous globes
Fragile and frail
Constructed of
A diaphanous veil

Fleeting bubbles
Bursting free
Illusive sight
Imparting glee

    Greetings for the day!

    Short and beautiful – the poem travels straight to the heart.


    • Christine Tabaka

      Thank you so much Satyananda, I am grateful for your kind words!

    • David Paul Behrens

      The more I read this poem, the more I want to go out into the sunshine and blow some bubbles. Calling it “cute” does not go far enough. It is beautiful.

      • Christine Tabaka

        Why thank you so much David. I still love blowing bubbles in the sunshine, and I am 67 years old! I appreciate your lovely compliment!

    I enjoyed reading “Bubbles”! (You know “Bubbles” is a successful poem when it prompts a reader to feel as if she’s on the set of the Lawrence Welk show!) I look forward to reading more of your work.
