Bubble

.

Approaching full size, the bubble

forms perfectly, gleams in light from

new or fading suns, and is born. Gently

blow the liquid drift away when it is ready.

Seal it and watch it float away. Too

much wind and you get soap on your

upper lip.


The year can be stuffed inside a perfect

orb adrift on the timeline of your

inhalations of fresh oxygen. It rides

out along the exhalations and, in time,

will burst.

.

Do not fret, please. A new bubble

is always forming. Take three hundred

and sixty five days to actually figure

out how to keep it round and adrift a long

time. In time, it will come naturally once

you accept that bubbles are not

eternal.
