 Bubble has always been a subject of curiosity, daintily airborne, rising gracefully!


Donning a rainbow cape, the bubble rises higher,
Clinging onto thin film, its dreams aspire.
To reach the skies, its heart is set on fire,
Stays buoyed up in the air by trapped in desire.
Eyes looking through kaleidoscope,
Fuelled by belief, padded with wings of hope.
Soaring on a tightrope, learns tricks of trade to cope,
Staves off from pin pricks and the downward slope.
Bubble grows big, by now bursting at the seams,
Do not know when it might give way, spilling all its dreams.
Is pride flowing in, making it to bloat?    Or is it fury that fills it, weighing from afloat.
Will the bubble choose to lose or brave it all and win,
Just an inch away from downfall if it gives in.
Oblivious to all odds, up and up it goes… the ephemeral high-flyer!
Know not what it takes for a bubble to rise… higher and higher.

You might try highlighting the whole piece and clicking on ‘1’ on the lower tool line, which should get it all evenly spaced again, allowing you… Read more »
