"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines.

Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Las Burbujas

Floating aimlessly
Through the sea of children
A wave of bubbles
Rides the morning sky


A connection.
Something shared across
Barriers of language, race, class
Needless to the backgrounds
That differ so severely.

They giggle and point
Fingers reaching and wiggling
Into the still air.

Corre, corre!

Like followers of the Pied Piper
They are led on a wild chase
Skipping, sprinting, hopping, grabbing
Captivated with delight.
Entranced by the carefree game
Until the last drops
Of solution are scraped
From the plastic bottle

Mas burbujas?
Lo siento, mi amigo, no tengo mas.

The moment has ended
But the image remains
Frozen into the smiling eyes
Of all the children
Black and white
Big and small
