Head Trip

Posted on

September 2015 217


Her thoughts drifted
With shaving cream clouds
Reshaping themselves
Like her dreams

Baby blue backgrounds
Beckoned her
Softer landings
Welcomed her
With raspberry tarts
And bubble milk tea

Embracing the orb of night
She took to the sky

S   l   o   w   l   y

Rising gracefully
To the stars




De is hosting over at dVerse Poets Pub today. We are writing quadrilles of exactly 44 words incorporating the word “bubble”. Fun stuff!

  1. “shaving cream clouds” — are you KIDDING me with this? How have I never written this? This is brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.

    Beautiful piece, all ’round, but that phrase is a wish-I-wrote-it if I ever heard one!

  2. It’s almost like an out-of-body experience with her r i s i n g slowly. And those clouds do look just like shaving cream…a beautiful poem.

  3. Oh I love the shaving cream clouds… so perfect… and yes I would like to rise to sleep rather than fall asleep… so much better… an idea comes to mind:

    I’d rather, rise for clouds
    and stars
    and moons
    in dreams
    than fall for darkness
    when it’s time to sleep.

  4. Shaving cream clouds — fabulous! Haven’t heard the term milk bubble tea in many a year. Love this one!

  5. Very imaginative and whimsical, and I love those ending lines:

    S l o w l y

    Rising gracefully
    To the stars

    Love that bubble milk tea ~

  6. What a beautiful scene you have created! Loved that ending.

  7. A masterpiece without having to clean brushes. A great life “screen capture”!

  8. Now I want to drift slowly up to the sky holding onto the orb of night! Love this!

  9. Oh my word. This is stunning.

    I especially like “Baby blue backgrounds / Beckoned her / Softer landings” and “She took to the sky / S l o w l y / Rising gracefully / To the stars.”

  10. slowly rising to the stars in the shaving cream clouds…transcending…

  11. Lovely! Love the shaving cream clouds 🙂
