Freshman - 1,070 Points (January 4,1931 / a citizen of the world)


See them rise, float away and gently burst.
Innocently the child blowing them didn't know
he was creating a perfect metaphor for life.

    I love this seeing that I wrote a poem for my children called 'bubbles'. Light bubbles but deep water Jerry! You're a bubble of wisdom. Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

    I love the depth of this Jerry, the transient image of the floating bubbles, the innocence of the child - and finally, the bubbles gently bursting. A delicately crafted yet deeply profound piece of poetry. Justine xx (Report) Reply
