A Bubble of love


 A rainbow-tinged bubble rose from the dish soap,

like a pearl or crystal ball rising into the air.

I imagined that it represented our love, as it endured, rising up toward heaven.

Then it found a piled-up tablecloth on the top of the cabinet and rested there, miraculously unbroken. It perched gently and sat as a sentinel of our daily matrimonial routines.

It sat there, pristine and whole for a few minutes before it vanished, unseen.

Is that a sign of our love?
