Bubble Poetry

gedicht, Inernational Blowing Bubbles Day

Iris Roggema brought me this poetry found in the streets of Nijmegen, which she was made aware of by a friend of her’s. How social media can be great!
in my poor translation:

.           go          or
.           blow      drift
every  some     a bit
one     bubbles around

The Isle of Schylge, Friendship and Bubbles

Judith wrote: Me and my friend, Daniëlle, who has never been on the isle of Terschelling before, made these pictures today. For me it was the most relaxing moment i’ve had in a long time after recovering from illness. For my friend it was magical like she was walking in a fairytale. Anything you’ve been through makes no sense anymore on that amazing piece of nature.
