Daily Prompt: Bubble

P1290532

Air-filled sac blowing in the wind;
Something from almost nothing;
Soap and water bringing rainbow delight.
Magical bubble, fighting the air
Shapeless trying to find globular.
Cause of laughter and joy
A giggle-maker, encouraging the chase
And a huge urge to destroy
To burst the bubble and stand back
In triumph, waiting for the next.
Essence of floating transparency
Dreams in the air floating skyward
Distractor from reality which reawakens
Our childhood innocence and wonder.

Daily Prompt: River

P1540375_2

Welling up from nowhere, fluid freshness
Snaking its way through the grass
Squelching underfoot and seeping
Through the stitching of my boots.

Clear, sweet liquid; fountain of life
Forming rivulets between the tussocks
And carrying tiny particles as it flows
Always downward; mind of its own.

Whispering, chattering, bubbling
With life, love, laughter
Skipping  over pebbles and
Forcing crevices anew.

Water; slaking thirsts of plants
And animals alike: little rivers
Of refreshment joined by others
And swelling the ranks as it flows.

Widening, the trickle grows
Splashing over boulders and hiding
Fish within its eddies. Under-currents.
Swirling and twirling with coolness.

And suddenly down the steep slope
Falling a sweet cascade of sparkling light
And sound of rushing gurgles
Crashing down a precipice of stone.

And ever onwards always flowing along
The lowest path; rushing from mountain
To valley and slowing to sluggishness
As it meanders to the sea.

Water more precious than gold
Life saver of all; transparent and clear
Yet combining every colour of the rainbow
Promise of life from heaven to earth.
