March 19: Clean

to cleanse or not to cleanse
that is the question

raindrops are
supposed to fall
and clean the air.

too bad there are
no scrubbing bubbles
for the earth.

    ooo! I absolutely love the idea of scrubbing bubbles! But, of course, your message is much more sinister. Yes. 'Too bad there are no scrubbing bubbles for the earth.'

    Ah, cleaning. Well, I won't get a chance at poetry this weekend as I am cooking and doing laundry for my son who is home for spring break . It is so nice to have everyone under one roof... I hope to participate next week.
