She's chasing after bubbles,
floating by so prettily, lighter than the air,
shimmery transparent orbs
a million blended shades of purple pink and blue on the edges,
She's going to catch those bubbles and
keep them safe and round in her chubby palms.
But the closer she gets, the sooner it pops,
one by one by one,
it's a little upsetting, but she'll keep on trying,
jogs a bit and then giggles a lot
and the sun winks down at her,
bouncing off a tiny bubble that first
escaped her view,
she winks back and reaches out
and sees it disappear.
