Thesaurus 355

Thesaurus 1982 edition with glasses, Time Timer, paperweight and three owls
Roget’s Thesaurus 1982 edition still in use

from bubble to cloud
from surf to souffle
to fermentation and fizz

in the sea on a screen
on a plate in the sky
in bottle and brain

this froth has kissed me well
and will do still
when lather turns to mist

Daily prompt for The Daily Post, 9 Feb 2018: Simplify
