Bubbles … Bubbles … Bubbles

Bubbles
blowing in the wind
I try to catch them
I can’t, what a sin


They float, they lift
with the currents of wind
Up, up, they soar 
higher and higher in the sky                               


Gentle crystal bubbles
radiant colors, sparkling
Iridescent and glistening bright
rising, rising, soon out of sight

What child or adult doesn’t enjoy playing with bubbles? 

A combination of dish soap or shampoo and water create the liquid that can provide an afternoon of fun. 

A thin layer of soap film forms hollow spheres when blown through an object. The bubbles don’t last very long before bursting but children always find it exciting to try and catch one. It’s always been a fun pastime.

Frank @ A Franke Angle hosts Beach Walk Reflections.

Last week, he wrote about bubbles at the beach.

His insightful essays on the topic are a pleasure read and worth a look.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. I was always a fan of bubbles. I enjoyed hop scotch and jumping rope too.
    These were fun pastimes with little cost. I wish kids could experience these
    things today. The speed of media overtakes them. This was a simpler time.
    I’m glad you had the opportunity to enjoy bubbles with your kids.
    Thanks for popping over … have a great week.

  2. well done on your bubbles prose!
    and they can be so fun –
    years ago someone gifted my boys the old school stick and circle rope (something like in that photo) and they used a bucket for getting the suds on it. It was fun for a little while.

  3. We had lots of fun with bubbles when our girls were growing up. Might be fun even now. Sidewalk chalk was also a favorite. Love the poem Isadora … and thanks for the pingback on my post. I invite you, readers, to stop by for a beach walk about bubbles. I love playing with bubbles. They’re great for the beach. The wind comes and creates a beautiful large size bubble.Retaining Walls

    • Oh, bubbles never lose their child-like feel.
      I get some bubbles everytime my grandkids visit. The beach works great with little ones, no mess. Sidewalk chalk is another fun simple toy. Now-a-days, I don’t think i’d be able to rise from the ground … lol Thanks for this enjoyable comment, Lisa.
