Fay Slimm.





Hello shiny loop of post-shower Rainbow,
you, sign of timely protector  
are used by Heaven as sages foretold.     

Oh consummate bend of swept creation         
who knows why random appearance              
became fancied myth of tinted striation.           

You curved secreter of sought potted gold,
crescent teacher of arc reflection
your optic observance has not lost its hold.     

Alive with kaleidoscope eye-iridescence 
you wane with ghostly foreboding,
turning pale to invalidate planet neglect.     

Oh Rainbow use alchemy to retain control,    
stay watching self-seekers' abuse,                   
keep vaulted your prism as chaos unfolds.

    • Fay Slimm.

      I am delighted you take to the picture my friend as I was in two minds whether to choose it to illustrate the piece........... thanking you angmaria for your visit and read.

      this is so good Fay.. if I was both a poet and quite a few years younger.. I would both arc and do a double back flip for thee... beautiful words and true.... sadly its not just my eyes that have gone.... my knees are not so young as they once were.....


      • Fay Slimm.

        I dont need eyes or knees to see thee backflip in my mind (as I smile) dear Nev - merci most kindly for this welcome in-put to my take on Protector................. love it I do.

        • Fay Slimm.

          I am honoured you think so my friend - gifts of arranging words around subjects us poets appreciate and work hard to use.......... and thanking you kindly for your read and your comment.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          ANGELA HERE - Hello Fay - You have taken a familiar subject *A RAINBOW* and sanctified it. GOD provided the Rainbow as a reminder that He would never again destroy Planet earth witha Universal Flood ! However we have come close in some places in the UK this year. Brian & I are buying a house on a Hill and away from the River ! Your poem is a cornucopia of elegantly matched free-verse triplets ! Love the phrases -

          Such a myth of rain-drop striation
          You curved secreter of sought potted gold - WICKED !

          Thanks for sharing such a prismatic & polished poetic gem !
          Love the visual - so so appropriate - awesome !
          Blessings & Peace & Joy & Love
          Yours Angela & Brian ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿค๐Ÿงก
