A Glimpse of a Dream


I tiptoe tentatively, back stretched, arms reaching up.

The music is floating, mesmerising me. I am ensnared in a field of light, featherlike.

As if in a trance, I spread my finger tips, balancing an imaginary sphere, a bubble of fairy rainbows. I clasp hold of it. Then let go, and relax, before stretching to catch once more.

It bursts on my page, leaving a film of flickering images, a dance of words.

A glimpse of what could have been.

  1. Ah the majestic world of bubbles. A dance of pure colour encased in an impossible sphere of light and fun. You capture it beautifully Katie! I so love that even the structure of your piece resembles a bubble of sorts—just about to burst.

    Thanks for your thoughtful comment. I’m fascinated by the transience and fragile beauty of life as demonstrated in a bubble.

  3. Ah this is beautiful 🙂
