Poem for Sunday and Brookside Soap Bubbles


Soap Bubble
By Valerie Worth

The soap bubble's
Great soft sphere
Bends out of shape
On the air,
Leans, rounds again,
Rises, shivering, heavy,
A planet revolving
Hollow and clear,
Mapped with
Rainbows, streaming,
Curled: seeming
A world too splendid
To snap, dribble,
And disappear.

Since Maddy is leaving for an indefinite amount of time on Sunday morning, we spent the day with her, starting with brunch at Metro 29 Diner in Arlington with Alice, Jeremy, and their son. We also took her to the bank, to UPS to ship some things home, and to pick up a friend at the mall, with whom we had dinner and with whom she is currently out along with other work friends while we watched Doctor Who ("Thin Ice" aka the Frost Fair episode, which I really loved -- I am really loving this season after being annoyed with the show for a long time) and Class (not terrible but thematically meh, no "Father's Day"). Now we're watching Graham Norton but I need to get to bed because we're driving Maddy to the airport before 6 a.m. Here are some photos of a guest's soap bubbles floating through Brookside Gardens:
