Fay Slimm.





Swirling in oily rainbowing movement
the bubble traps time,
wraps beauty around eternity and vibrates
its world of fluidity.
Excelling in jailed soapy space-restraint
orb creates and encases
in outer fragile-thin globular skin layers
of gossamer jewellery.


Look closely at see-thru' glassy sphere
and its tiny potential
caught in a universe of wondrous hues
swirling entombed yet alive.
Then in bursting lets fall what was first
indescribable but now
disappeared bubble's enchanting magic
awes any inner-child's mind.

      GOOD MORNING FAY ~ BRIAN HERE ~ Angela @ Work me Huse Husband & Smokey Minder but not for Long ! Next Monday I have to be back in College to prepare for a brief return by Students before the August (come she must !) break ! Becaus all our courses are based on continuous assessment they will all progres to the next year ~ AMEN !
      BUBBLES are awsome and kids love them. Because of Surface Tension they are spherical and because th surfce refracts the White light into R O Y G B I V they are rainbow coloured ! Everything is a Childs life is ephemeral - so wen they burst (and disappear !) when you catch them - adds to their mystique ! Its interesting that with C 19 relaxaion we talk about *Inviing People into our BUBBLE !* Thanks for sharing

      Blessings & Peace & Joy
      Love BRIAN & ANGELA 💛💛💛

          This is brilliant Fay. I've never looked at bubbles in this way. Surely they fascinate the minds of children, pets, and now adults. I must protest though that you left out the tiny bubbles of Champaign magic. Loved this poem. - Phil A.

          Wonderful words Fay, bubbles are so interesting to look at and into, so many things can be seen then all suddenly disappears and leave you waiting for the next one.

          Can't help but love bubbles can you. I have bought a bubble machine and gallons of bubble fluid to amuse the grandkids and what do we get.... lockdown grrr can't win.

          Yes i was taken again by you to the sticky popping of bubbles on my face just after seeing my nose's amplified reflection drawing too close.
          A wonderful summertime piece.
