Short and beautiful – the poem travels straight to the heart. Regards Reply Christine Tabaka April 14, 2018 Thank you so much Satyananda, I am grateful for your kind words! Reply David Paul Behrens April 11, 2018 Cute poem. All you need is bubbles to forget your troubles. And I meant for that to rhyme. (That was for you, Joe.) Reply David Paul Behrens April 11, 2018 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. Reply Christine Tabaka April 14, 2018 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! David Hollywood April 14, 2018 What a lovely light relief. Thank you. Reply E. V. "Beth" Wyler April 14, 2018 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. E. V.
