Bubbling with enthusiasm
Bubbly baby born to please
Gregarious and an extrovert
by nature out to garner
support for fun and laughter

With infectious smiles wry
on occasions but reaching
out to all and sundry

Can one be faulted not to be
won over?
(44 words)

For De's Quadrille 3 at d'Verse, a Micro Fiction of not
exceeding 44 words and to include the word 'bubbles' and
Marian's The Tuesday Platform at Real Toads


  1. No indeed.. there is bubbles that we love to be infected from... Big smile from me.

  2. Wonderfully written, and the image adds that little bit extra to the poem. Nice.

  3. An excellent write Hank, lovely words.

  4. Those bubbles will sure infect all and have them smiling along

  5. Infectious smiles are indeed catching. :) I love this.

  6. nicely done Hank & love that pic too :)

  7. if he is cute & bubbly, then no, smiles ~

  8. If I'm understanding correctly, you're saying you're NOT won over, even though everyone else seems to be. Perhaps I'm misreading. But if I'm correct, I think this jumps to a totally different level of cleverness, which I dig.

    "Bubbly baby born to please" ... That was/is definitely me. Something inside makes some of us feel desperate to "win people over." It's really not a good trait, even though it seems like it would be.

  9. Bubbling with enthusiasm - that just sounds like fun

  10. Bubbly people wear on me. I doubt their sincerity.
    Smiles are infectious I do believe. Sincere smiles.
    Nicely written, states your case well.

  11. It's hard not to smile at bubbles or bubbliness. (Or bubs.)

  12. One can't be faulted at all. Some bubbliness is just irresistible. ;-D

  14. Bubbling with enthusiasm is definitely the way to go, Hank! I enjoyed this.

  15. I'm not one of those bubbly people, but I try to understand what makes them "bubble". Thank goodness we are all different. Bubbly babies? Now that is just irresistible.

  16. You can see right through that, right? And still have empathy. Some cups bubble over. :)
