Your Rainbow

Everyday I chase your rainbow Spanning all my years Painting in color my sorrow Magnifying all my tears. You were the buttercup yellow of fun The vibrant violet of argument You were the orange laughing sun The sharp red of excitement. I paint my memories one by one Every shade of green and pink and blue Maybe when all is said and done I'll remember you in a different hue. For you chased the pure white light To a place I could not follow So every colorless night I search for color in my sorrow. But sorrow can only be monotone How many shades of black? Now I look at rainbows all alone Wish so much that you were back.

Good, creative poem. Different colours often do seem to match different moods. Nicely done.

You, are like a rainbow Heidie, so deeply rich in beauty, you are quite magical. A joy to know, to say the least. May your new year be filled with love, good health and happiness. And for always, may all your dreams come true. Love you, Shar xoxo

This poem has a wonderful and graceful flow. I always love to see the rainbow. It has such a pleasant feeling. This poem appeals to the sense of sight. I like the ending stanza a lot. Great job! ~Joseph
