Looking towards the blue sky
Every color camouflaged around the cloud
Tears of sadness began to dry
Watching all the colors display out loud

The dark needing to fade
The grey in my life finally made sense
Colors overlapping, forming a beautiful cascade
Shoulders of tense

I imagined your smile against the yellow sun
Giving light to all the matter of the things I've done
A warmness in my red heart-- together in the long run
Creating a new purple and pink sensation-- as one

My new rainbow doesn't come in black and white
Giving reason to follow the joy of light 
A gift of colors remind me everything will be all right
A guide blazing throughout the night

Lavender plant blooming for the world to see
A garden of every color just for me
Everyday I see the sunrise, rising up in colors of glee
My Rainbow will appear everyday without rain, no matter how deep the sea

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet, the perfect skin tan
My sweet angel your the largest spectrum where ever rainbows span


I wrote this poem for my mom.

    A lovely poem for your mom and a great win. I miss my son whenever I see a rainbow. He loved them and would call me to tell me not to miss it if he saw one. Love, Joyce

    As they say on face book : I like. Seriously,Once I went to work and could not decide whether to give up this stressful job or not at a country hotel. Someone rang me in my office which had no windows and said You need to go to a funeral now. Driving back to work same day at 3.30pm I descended a hill to the business and saw 2 rainbows criss crossing the the roof of the buildng. I knew to give my job up there and then and would never have left the office but for that.
