Read Poems by
Blossoms and Bubbles
The chandelier cast rainbow colors
that bounced and glanced off champagne bubbles,
like dizzy balloons escaped with others
and off with wishes flew our troubles.
Each wish, our toasts in fluted vessels
like tulip blossoms caress the rain
then slowly drip till last they nestled
upon a brow to ease the pain.
The bubbles in the waves were tossed
along the Cape Cod shores we shared,
between the dunes no memory's lost
where blossoms of the beach rose dared.
So very long ago it seems
just like a lovely secret dream.
