Indeed, I love it when words fit neatly into place, my dear friend, unfortunately it doesn't happen very often.. I usually have to yank and pull and push them around for a bit to get them to fall in line.. lol! I'm glad you thought my poem clever, Paul, my first attempt with this form. Thank you for your wonderful visit and gracious comments. Warmest wishes and hugs.. ~Susan

Your rainbow is so bright and inspiring, esp 'Ribbon arcs across skies' - they have always reminded me of girl's ribbons - and ravishing violet, oh yes please! Sure to be a top winner, IMHO~
