Sat in the park 

Nature draws me as a magnet

Trees usually beckon but today it’s humans

Families together, connected in the allowed covid bubble 

Have no bubble family at the moment, feel insignificant

Watch the little girl by the pond, fascinated

She had a long tube of bubbles and a magic wand

Blew gently, carefully as a kiss

Then cheeks puff out like a hamster

Innocent fairy bubbles that hypnotised 

All sizes, shapes and rainbow colours

They danced, skipped and floated into the blue 

The bubbles were empty but felt full

They had given so much pleasure 

Especially to the little girl and me

She waved her wand at me as she left

I no longer felt alone, had been part of that bubble today
