Birth of A Rainbow
~ Linda L. Dowd ~

In the hazy, summer mist, I stood transfixed
as I witnessed the birth of a rainbow.
The gentle rain had cleansed the air of its impurities,
and there, high in the sky,
was a glorious sight.
Pastels of the most heavenly hues,
were banding together to form a bridge of light
across the wide expanse of sky.
Although its ephemeral beauty soon dissipated,
the memory of that day,
when I witnessed the birth of a rainbow,
will remain with me always.

And I too am transfixed by your poetry!
Excellent write.

Hi, Suthern!

Today I saw the most glorious rainbow! I saw it in its entirety ~ from beginning to end! The bands were delineated clearly and were of the most intense, brilliant colours! Not what you would call a "misty" rainbow! It was magnificent!

Rainbow hugs,

Linda
