Sliding Down The Rainbow

It is said where the rainbow ends
There`s a treasure chest filled with gold ..

What magnificent view ..
Here from the top of this colorful bow ..

Sliding down from the rainbow
I found the treasure chest was filled with Poetry Soup ..

The world stood still, until I realized this is the game
A treasure worth more than gold and diamonds ..

Unique poets sharing their heart and soul
Outstanding and original poetic pens, filled with golden ink

We rant and we vent, love and laugh
Still its in the spirit of letting in and letting go..

The impressions that stays like superglue
While other times it goes in one ear and out the other

Choice is ours, pick and choose
Still its in the spirit of letting go, letting in ..
