The Bubble Bath Way

By Mary E. Adair

Cast your cares aside
And midst the bubbles hide
From all the problems and toil
That make your blood roil

Let the warm water flow fast
The more bubbles, longer they last
And soak in aroma sweet
Immersed from chin to feet

Empty your mind of every thought
Don't ponder things that should be bought
Think about floating worry free
About all the sights you'd like to see

Be only mindful of this time and space
And the bubbles forming patterns like lace
The steam rising into a light haze
And believe this'll be one of your better days

Let your words soften and even fade
As the bubbles do in the bath you've made
And things should go smoother in your day
So bask in the afterglow of the Bubble Bath way.

  1. Love the rhythm and rhyme, and could feel the heat and floating weightlessness, worrylessness. Thanks!
