  14. Aunty Lyn the bubble lady

    A beautiful poem for a beautiful bubble lady

    Lips to the wand I gave it a blow
    slow round form begins to grow
    it loses its grip and flies above
    hugging the sky as if it’s in love

    Rainbow colors it does reflect
    blowing winds it tries to reject
    A thing of beauty with clear skin
    I long deeply to view it from within

    shining like diamonds under a light
    it twists and dances along sun light
    I envy it’s beauty so clean and pure
    I now wonder how long it’ll endure

    invading my thoughts with a small pop
    the tiny bubbles flight came to a stop
    I felt a sense of sadness it had to go
    so I grabbed the wand and gave a blow
    Pic is a bubble I caught,I Love bubbles & all

    I will always miss you and when I grab that bubble wond I will always remember you and how beautiful u r xxx
