effervescence

effervescence

Ever watch the bubbles rise?

Feeling their random rising joy?

Floating in a sphere ready to burst!

Ending in a satisfying pop, hiss or gurgle!

Reminding you of that time you laughed so hard.

Virtually a whole mouthful of soda came out your nose!

Everyone joined in, tears rolled down faces turning red.

Soda bubbles are giggles, volcanoes burst in anger and we

Cannot contain ourselves as we too join in the laughter of life.

Even you, stony faced and serious, have to bubble up a bit inside.

No one can resist the belly deep, bubbling laughter of a sweet child.

Confess, we all know it is true, everyone wants to ride the shaken soda!

Enter into a new world on a rocket made of Mountain Dew and Dr. Pepper!

With Real Toads, Effervescence, a fun poem for a fun prompt in the middle of the night.  Copyright 2012 Shanyn Silinski

    Such a clever approach to the challenge. I love how you concluded your poem in the last 2 lines.

      Kerry – thanks so much! It was rather fun, and I’m glad it worked so well! Maybe insomnia poetry works for me! 🙂

    Oh good one, Shanyn….all the wonderful bubble possibilities. I babysit often and bubbles are a big part of our play therapy! (I love them even more than the kids do!)

    very nice, miles above the average acrostic I read… and I love how the line length grew too

    So cute… I do love the belly deep, bubbling laughter of a sweet child. I almost did an acrostic, too. Thanks for taking part.
