Day 282: Bubbles


Well today is the last day of #NaPoWriMo, the National Poetry Writing Month and I'm glad to say I have 30 poems under my belt and loved every minute of it. Or, another way to put it - I've been surrounded by glorious bubbles all month, like Don Paterson says -

Poem - Don Paterson 

I want neither glory
nor that, in the memory
of men, my songs survive;
but still... those subtle worlds,
those weightless mother-of-pearl
soap-bubbles of mine... I just love
the way they set off, all tarted up
in sunburst and scarlet, hover
low in the blue sky, quiver,
then suddenly pop
