A Rainbow


As I walked along Marblehill strand
Watching rolling waves on the sand
Was wet and dull a bleak grey day
As I stopped and looked across the bay

In a moment the clouds began to part
And within a single beat of my heart
I witnessed a spectacular colour show
A magnificent shimmering rainbow

    I love it! I love it! In the far, far North where I was born, rainbows are the whole sky wide. I fear I'll never see the like again. Read mine - We The Unencoundered -
