I Chased A Rainbow

I Chased A Rainbow

I chased a rainbow across brilliant sky,
I ran blinded and didn't even ask why!

Colors blasted my deepest thoughts apart
sky a shining rainbow did swiftly yield
a journey I flew into with a hurried start
chasing a work of art into a flowery field!

So easy to feel the aura and singing hues
as I raced blissfully on my merry way
great mystery awaiting without any clues
a longing sent that my heart must obey!

Diamonds and gold I did not ever find
a glory of mercies was what I found
love soon took hold of my lonely mind
as divine music sprang from the ground!

Dancing fairies next took their bows
as I scampered across and all around
ships appeared with such stately prows
golden anchors clinking on silver ground!

I caught a rainbow Spirit with a plea,
increase the love of precious life in me!

This came to me as I was waking this fine morn.
Lack of time to write it down , I mentally finished 
it later today. I saw rainbow light as I woke this 
morning. Methinks my Muse was shouting at me! lol

    you've got one nice little leprechaun floatin' around in your crawl space! Nice write of Rainbows and life. PLUS, sir your comments are SUper Nice and gave me goose bumps. Writing is a curse of words ticker taping around my head and they wont shut up until I write them down. When someone tells me the stuff is good, I don't know how to respond. But the way you say it was real cool. Thanks.
