Bubbles

Sat impatiently waiting
her pink taffeta puffed
her sparkly shoes scuffed.

Looking outward at the world
inside these golden bubbles
her tiara glints defiantly!

Will she ever let her out
what if someone saw her,
beyond the tinted assumption?

She laughs at the thought
hard earned respect, her prize
sits alien beside her.

She shuffles words gingerly
aware of dynamite force
then bravely marches forward.

And suddenly the cork pops!
champagne drops reflected
in tiers of crystal glasses.

  1. Well! What can I say … other than ‘fantastic’? Another Yorkshire-inspired poem to grace your burgeoning portfolio. Your poems just go from strength to strength, Abi … they really do. And, like the last one, reading this poem brought back special moments from your (& Shan’s, of course) recent visit. 🙂

  2. I love this: “She shuffles words gingerly
    aware of dynamite force
    then bravely marches forward.”

    yes, everyday. (watch out for flying corks) 🙂

  3. This poem is written from a different angle, and I really like that. If anyone can think outside the box or from a different perspective, it should be artists of different genres. You have done this perfectly here and I applaud you (with champagne of course!)

  4. A tight write, I really enjoyed this. I absolutely love the phrase “tinted assumption”.

  5. smiles…really nice overall…but beyond the celebration the lines that struck me were…what if someone saw her,
    beyond the tinted assumption?

    to me that colors the rest…

  6. Bubbles, like assumptions, are ever changing shape shifters, at the mercy of the wind. It’s when they pop that the real excitement begins…and when assumptions are laid to waste…all that remains….is poetry 😉 Wonderful weave, indeed. Spiked my imagination.

  7. Innocence wrought in taffeta and charming pride! Who is the other to be let out, I wonder? This is suggestive of a greater process going on, one of growth and burgeoning awareness.
