a soft popping of bubblegum


Lisa’s work posted by Raven Howell

A friend, as a child, was asked by another child who was blind, “What does pink look like?” How would YOU have answered it she asks today… this is the inspiration for my poem.

A bite of buttered gnocchi,

The squish of marshmallow,

A soft popping of bubblegum

A heartfelt, smiled “Hello!”

Fragrant garden roses,

A stress-free springtime day,

A breath, a hint of whispering

Of breeze upon the bay.

A blushing childhood cheek,

Sunrise on the brink.

Pet a piggie’s belly

To get to know your pink!
