Bubbles of Nothing

They could be drops of water
On a window but  they're not
They could be many craters
On the moon but they're not

They could be tumbling tears
On a cheek but they're not
They could be healed  scars
On dark skin but they're not

They could be tiny holes 
In a loofah but they're not
They could be particles of dust
On a duster but they're not

They could be honeyed nougat
In a chocolate but they're not
They could be powder sherbets
On a lolly but they're not

  What are these mystery droplets
That delight many mouths afar?
They're delicious chocolate bubbles
 In a NestlĂ©  Aero bar!

  2. Chocolate. You're a girl after my own heart.

  3. Oh but for all it could be... such a sweet ending thought.

  4. Oh yum....that looks so good! I love the light and fluffy kind of chocolate because there are no calories where the air bubbles are : )

  13. Fun, lively stuff Steve is good for all of us! Thank you.

  14. Charming! Okay, here's what you need to do.....have music set to this poem and submit it on a dvd to the Nestle' Corp., along with your spoken (and accompanying written) proposal that it be used in their advertising; payment negotiable. Seriously! It is that good...and I guess the candy is very good too. :)

  15. Lydia! You're not serious! I think it's corny as you'll see from my comment on Magpie 60.
