Lady Rainbow


Lady Rainbow


Left with empty autumn skies

Realising that something

That had all the colours of a rainbow

Was actually nothing more than a trick of the light

I could see it but would never touch it

Because it was never really there

It was only there to mesmerise me and fool my eyes

To cause me to travel endlessly in persuit

While it came never nearer

Tantalising and beautiful

Promising riches to be found

But those colours make land on another shore

And bathe another in their light

I see this now when I look above the camouflage

And through the shrouding mists

Mix rainy tears with sunshine smiles

And rainbows will appear to you

    Rainbows are like hope…….something to reach for! so i like to think that there is always a rainbow on the horizon….whether i find the end of it, well who cares….the fun is in pursuing the end ya know. Despite everything……the fun is in the chase…and that chase is life! hugs Col xx

    Ah, but the rainbow is always there. It’s just waiting for the right light to show itself.
