Bubble

The dancing bubbly lips

Are in constant hurry

They often forget to fill

The words with soul

The light phrases float

Enjoy their moment’s stay

Die leaving an air of sigh

Words that birth

From mighty pen

Are nuggets of gold

To live forever


This is inspired by the Tibetan proverb "Words are mere bubbles of water; deeds are drops of gold."

Posted for dVerse Quadrille 3 the word to play with is Bubble

  1. So true... we might like those bubbly words, but in the end it's the deeds that count... and maybe a few chosen words inspiring deeds. Hope though we can use them both.

  3. Ah... The power of the word---especially when written! Bubble up and disappear when said - although their effect can last for years. Thumbed goes quickly - but pen and ink can be indelible! Great take on the word.

  4. Such wisdom in your words Sumana ~ Those words are nuggets of gold to live forever, so we must carefully chose them ~ And I love that proverb, indeed actions are drops of gold ~

  5. Words can indeed be nothing more than water bubbles. Great encouragement to be doers and not just talkers.

  9. Some people talk too much, like a wall of words coming at you, that have no real meaning. The words come and go, but as you say, the written words do take more thought, and will remain much longer. I enjoyed your poem.

  12. Many well-chosen words here--I particularly like the sound of:
    "The light phrases float
    Enjoy their moment’s stay
    Die leaving an air of sigh".

  13. A thoughtful piece. It is so easy to spew airy bubbles of nothing, but we can change lives when we speak from our hearts.
