“Phantasma” A series by Laurel Guido


Beginning with the word “phantasmagoria” as seen in the dictionary:


phan·tas·ma·go·ri·a ˌfanˌtazməˈɡôrēə/


1. a shifting series of phantasms, illusions, or deceptive appearances, as in a dream.

2. a changing scene made up of many elements.

3. an optical illusion produced by a magic lantern or the like in which figures increase or diminish in size, pass into each other, dissolve, etc.


Transparent cerulean bubbles float

Drifting over long limbs,

Disappearing as they land upon soft skin.

Glowing orbs cocoon a gentle being

Illuminating iridescent eyes,

Light bringing forth the otherworldly ethereal.

She creates kaleidoscopes with fingertips

Exhaling vibrant air,

While phantasmic bubbles float into illusion.
