The Uncertainty of Bubbles

credit


There are days when clinging to truth is like capturing bubbles...
grabbing at wind,
watching each perfectly clear, 
round beautiful bubble rise-
high out of reach

reminds me of the fleetingness of my life
that mist

I gaze skyward
feet firmly planted

I long for that which is out of my reach
grasping the air
I feel the breeze and ponder,
I know not where the wind blows,
yet I know the Spirit
that moves the wind.

Hair tousles
ears listen
mind perceives

senses alive...
 yet this cloud refuses to leave me, chases me down 

I refute the darkness that longs for me

bubble bouncing off  leafy tree limb
escaping narrowly 
until the sudden
burst

I stare upward at nothingness
pondering the meaninglessness of life

the vastness of the universe

and one swooping gust that allows a gasp to escape me
and a giggle,
and I am all small

little girl in awe
 again
the child

bends low
blowing bubbles
to the wind
while dancing with the 
bending branches

yielding completely to the presence
of this momentary beauty

hinting promises
unseen
but certain

yes, certain.

  1. I know not where the wind blows,
    yet I know the Spirit
    that moves the wind....and that is enough isnt it...smiles...and as a girl again, a child...what better place to be? smiles.

    happy new year to you

  4. I long for that which is out of my reach
    grasping the air
    I feel the breeze and ponder,
    I know not where the wind blows,

I'm listening, friend...in November I will not be replying so often, but instead slip quietly over to your place for a visit. ;)
