She stood there enjoying the simple childhood joy
Of dipping the plastic wand into a soap solution
Pressing her cherry lips into a tiny "O"
And blowing dozens of perfect bubbles across the yard
I sat beside her and watched them dance
Each captured the reflection of reality
And displayed it through a diluted clarity
That only open eyes can see
The little girl giggled as she twirled
Dozens of reflected realities floating around her

The author's comments:
I wrote this about my adorable little sister, basing it off of something I wrote while blowing bubbles and seeing Christmas lights reflect off of them.
