Poems with Mary Lee: Be Gentle With Me

Reflection in a soap bubble edit

Mary Lee has yet another great image this morning, to spark poetry. It is of a bubble.

Here’s what I wrote:

Hold me gently:
fingertips touching tender skin;
for inside,
I remain invisible
and vulnerable to the way things have been.
I float above this world,
in a cloak of color
but my rainbow drains easily,
so be gentle.

Peace (in the poems),


  1. I like that ‘my rainbow drains easily’ Kevin, and always like hearing you read. Thanks. I hope I can get over there to write too!
