Premium Member RAINBOWS HERE

Good earth styles
Fine ample grass;
A fine raiment

Sun and rain speak
Splurge fond refrain;
Rainbows echo

Dawn flings 
Shadows drowned;
Awake to birdsong

Man-made park
Forest architecture;
In the city

Journey here
Begin within;
Greet the sea shore

Waves splashing
Jetty promenade;
Fishing trip moments

Offshore boat ride
Temple pilgrimage;
Kusu Island...

Knocking at this bright moonlit door,
with folding hands and kneeling on stony...
