Lady of the Rainbow

Delicate lady of the air
you’ve made me wish to stand and stare
parading your wares for all to see
I gasp as your beauty first stuns
then, leaves me breathless.

Restless,
I feel a need to hold you, but helpless….
instead, offer my hands to catch those
drops which softly fall into my palms
(like a lovers gentle caress excites)
and know that that is how you too would
feel, if only you could be touched for real.
Soaked now as rain keeps falling
but still, I cannot ignore your sight or
wish the blessed rain to go away
nor raise a frown whilst my gaze is fixed.

Can I reach out and touch you…..dare I try?
or will you vanish from the dark blue sky
I entreat you, please do not leave
You are all the colours there will ever be
and tell me……
Is there really a pot of gold hidden at your feet?

But then,

do not divulge those secrets that are yours to keep
I care not for any chest of gold for
you are the treasure as far as I can see,
sent from the heavens above

Lady of the Rainbow….

You are one of Gods’ purest gifts of Love.

  1. Hilarious, as it panned out, but might have been more traumatic, I’m sure. I was once chased by geese, having just come out of hospital, and been taken by my mother to feed them in the park. I’m sure I and they produced a spectacle much like the one you describe so ably. A great post, thoroughly enjoyed.

  2. Oh, how many times I’ve peered at the sky, breathless at the beauty of it all. And the rainbow holds such promise…whether there’s a pot o’ gold, or not. I absolutely loved the transition through rhyme from “breathless” to the single line “restless.” Nice!

  3. Oh this is beautiful! And timely, as my husband just called to tell me he’d seen a rainbow and thought of me. Wish I’d gotten to see it. I love rainbows.

  4. Wonderfully written! I love the seemingly random rhymes, both end and internal, that help to carry this poem along and almost give it the feeling of a magical invocation.

  5. I really like this:

    “that is how you too would
    feel, if only you could be touched for real.
    Soaked now as rain keeps falling”

    And the first three lines.

  6. drops which softly fall into my palms
    (like a lovers gentle caress excites)
    and know that that is how you too would
    feel, if only you could be touched for real.

    Sensuously stunning and cleverly crafted, Bren! The lady left a lingering image that mesmerized the male instinct! Brilliant!

  7. smiles…i love that the rainbow itself is enough treasure for you…for if you did get the gold could you buy such beauty? and i rather am a sucker for mystery anyway…smiles. lovely imagery…

  8. “instead, offer my hands to catch those
    drops which softly fall into my palms
    (like a lovers gentle caress excites)
    and know that that is how you too would
    feel, if only you could be touched for real.”

    Very beautiful. Makes me think she too is reaching and not touching. I like the rainbow as female.

  9. Wow you captured her every whim and then some. And you even rhymed a bunch, the cat is really making you go out to lunch haha

  10. Lovely lady of the rainbow … so nice to her visit again and again ,,, she is our collective friend.
