A child plays with soap bubbles at the yard of the Puericultorio Perez Aranibar children's home in Lima

Skooter reporting 03/15/12

Wakes up to a bright sight

Azure sky lucid n’ serene

Heavens so warm yet so cool

By the early breeze at morn’ light

Appreciat’d the sunshine’s glory

Tiny droplets of spherical form

Began to descend clandestinely

Like rain shower and glary

Looks like soap bubbles,

Lots of them comin’ down

Don’t know where they come from

Perhaps from some kids dabbles

They come in various sizes,

Small n’ grand, filmy

A gallimaufry of colors

Pink, red, yellow or blushes

Some gamboling, careening

Even catwalks n’ soundless

And like people their life span

Too short…some lingering

Burst, disintegrated in air

Others reached ground

but didn’t last long…

Others still sails away

suddenly by squall but dare

Some go off course, however

lucky others remain steady

given second chance thus

charily took journey ‘til end ever

Survivors rose from the earth smiles

Two, three, four about a hundred

Drifts in air back again

Like Christmas balls bopped in miles

Free once more n’ wanders

Like newborn babes that hardly cry

That’s what lovers are

like soap bubbles delicate, tender

Look! There’s more comin’

Hey kids! What’s goin’ on?

I’m comin’ up…
