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
into flower fields chasing a work of art!

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
