Bubbles – so delicate,
girls dance within these spheres,
a swish of skirts, a kaleidoscope of pink
blue purple,
colors bleeding on the pristine surface.

They would like to know each other,
learn why one bubble is a luscious pink,
another a mysterious violet
Every time their bubbles collide, their
hands shoot up, trying to feel a crack
in the glossy dome.

But it is too fast, too durable, and the
bubbles slide by,
the secrets to a sapphire blue or a brilliant gold
go along with it.

;) I always believe the best art provokes a response from that reader - whether it's confusion or awe or anger. I'm not going to force my perspective on you; read the words as you will!
