Shall we
bubble ourselves
slight sane?

Effervesce this cold
sky into something
that makes sense,

fence ourselves
in with balloon moon,
crackled stars?

Blow me true
north, Love. This breeze
is begging for a new
toast, a quiet boasting
the humblebrag
of tears.

    Ha, some days bubbling oneself sane would be quite a trick….but floating on such a breeze would be a beautiful treat!

  2. ShirleyB says:

    A bubbly de- light! Floating away in a fresh breeze. Bliss πŸ™‚

  3. I love it… this is just so delightful… still tinged with some sadness, maybe bubble bursting too.. The fence of crackled stars if moons sounds like a gilded cage… don’t we all want that.

  4. Bryan Ens says:

    I would LOVE to bubble myself sane!

  5. Bodhirose says:

    I love all the aspects of bubble that you used, De. Beautiful and charming…loved your “fence ourselves in with balloon moon, crackled stars.”

  6. Misky says:

    Wonderful mixture and pairing of words, De. Love this.

  7. Something so bubbly about the way you write, loved this one.

  8. Em says:

    I love that you set this up as if it’s about a pool game (cue). Or a play. “And … cue music.”
    So much love for “S light sane.” πŸ™‚
    I love those cold and flu Alka-Seltzer tabs. They’re gross, but they work SO well.
    “sky into something” … I would LOVE to. “Sky” is a lovely verb.
    I fence myself every flipping day; I’m so sick of it.
    Love: “balloon moon, crackled stars”
    “Blow me true” … Ha.
    “north-love (verb) this breeze”
    “a quiet boasting” … beautiful phrase
    I am big-time loving the word “humblebrag.”

  9. Victoria says:

    Such fun word and image choices in this. I feel like writing a poem using humblebrag. It is so oxymoronic and just feels good on the tongue!

  10. Grace says:

    I so love the word bubble here…

    & those ending lines made me sigh ~ Here’s a toast to all the mad crazy love ~

  11. Waltermarks says:

    Great idea, I wish I could bubble out at times. Calgon take me away

  12. Bubbling ourselves sounds like all sorts of fun… especially when all that flying, toasting and boasting is involved.

  13. C.C. says:

    I love “crackled stars”—it’s such fresh imagery πŸ™‚

  14. ghostmmnc says:

    Such a fun loving poem! I’m thinking they’re in a hot air balloon, and the wind is blowing them around while they’re drinking champagne! πŸ™‚ I want to take that ride!

  15. I love these words, De. Humblebrag being the best!

  16. Fun and whimsical.
    I love “bubble” as a verb. So cool. πŸ™‚

  17. Sumana Roy says:

    i love to see the pictures your words bring…delightful…

  18. kim881 says:

    Your poem is like a piece of abstract art – I love it!

  19. lillian says:

    ThIs is bubble-icious! Some days I’d love to bubble myself sane! πŸ™‚ Maybe by corking the bottle or by blowing in that little ring. Some days maybe call for both! 😊

  20. This breeze
    is begging for a new
    toast, a quiet boasting

    Let the breeze go to do its own thing. It serves its purpose in its natural surroundings!


  21. First you’re over here…
    Then you’re over there…
    You bubble and effervesce all over de place!
    Quite nicely, I might add.

  22. Truedessa says:

    Bubbling myself sane might be interesting…as long as no bursts that bubble…

  23. Snakypoet (Rosemary Nissen-Wade) says:

    Oh, gorgeous! No-one smiths the words like you.

  24. Bubble liGhts
    of human horns..
    Blow hard
    Blow long..
    SinG high
    SonG grown..:)
