The Thing About Foam!
Foam, the essence of yin and yang. Occurring in nature, foam can be a part of creation or found at its decomposition at the end of life. Foam produced from soap gives one the feeling of cleanliness and health, while foaming at the mouth is considered a symptom of disease.
An exceedingly popular foam is found at the head of things a’top a perfectly poured mug of beer. The pouring and procurement of said “head” an art in and of itself, alluding to the fulfillment of taste in the brew itself. All in all a most satisfactory balance to life.

Wow! I will never look at foam in the same way again. Thanks Penny.
Hey Sandy, thanks, I was being extra creative that day! 🙂
Extra creative with foam – Sounds interesting! I am in a quirky night mood.

I’m foaming at the mouth to see you back. 😉 Good one.
Thank you, a pleasure to be here. I hope you had an excdellent vacation and that all is well with you! 🙂
An unique take.
Reminds me of these lines ……
The high tide will erase my foot-prints,
And the wind will blow away the foam.
But the sea and the shore will remain
Thank you. What a beautiful saying. Thank you for sharing this.
Dear Penny, How brilliant to take a Foam angle. You certainly have a clever imagination and the words to go with it! Thanks, Nan 🙂
Hi Nan. Thank you for your lovely compliments. I really didn’t want to go the “icky” road with this one, the picture accomplished that quite well. 🙂
Delightful take on the prompt. So much more sublime then – well – death!
Hi Alicia. Thank you. Yes, I agree with you! 🙂
AnElephantCant quite believe this
Though everyone knows he holds sweet Penny dear
But his face wears a frown
Does she go Uptown
Perhaps with a friend to learn so much about beer?
AnElephantcan’t concern himself here,
Regarding the question of beer
All knowledge acquired
In fact was inspired
By a visitor who does not dwell near, who is dear.
AnElephant bows before his beautiful friend.
She is as wise and generous as she is creative.
And she is a knockout at daft rhymes!
Oh I love that yin and yang of foam. I think I prefer the beer foam though (not being a drinker doesn’t matter)
Yes, me too, Alastair. Both about the beer foam and the not drinking of.
Been many years since I have had any. Although I do like the non alcoholic stuff. All the taste without the effect.
Foam.. what an interesting way of making philosophy of the most revolting picture I have seen in FF… 🙂 and I’d like a perfect glass of beer now.
Thanks. I did try to take the high road, and then of course the beer makes for an even greater high, so to speak! 🙂
Completely unlike anything else I’ve read in relation to the prompt – always a positive, as far as I’m concerned 😉
Hello Blake. What a wonderful compliment, thank you, so much! 🙂
Balance of life? 🙂 Humans tend to go the other extremes
Too, too true Yoshiko. Making balance a constant thing for all of us to work on, during our lives. 🙂
Yea 🙂 Penny. I have been trying to balance. Though sometimes work, sometimes burnt out
Balance is hard at times, Yoshiko. Remember to take care of you, too. Hard to keep our balance when we are exhausted, dear friend! 🙂
Yes, Penny, my dear friend. I am still learning to take care of myself. I am thankful to have you as a friend to confide. And also thankful for my mum who has been helping in the house and my son and giving tips; my dad to help in repairing spoiled stuffs
Thank you and you are thrice blessed with a loving and caring family, Yoshiko!
Welcome and thank you, Penny, for your remarkable inspirations, writings and even photography 🙂
