Crescented Magic.

Fay Slimm.

Crescented Magic.

Hello shiny loop of post-shower Rainbow,
you of mosaic-powered striated halo,
and so sages tell, a sign of faith.

Oh consummate sweep of bow-creation,
who can know when and why
you appear with myth of fascination. 

You chaste secreter of much potted gold,
crescented magic of arc-perfection
your brilliant mixtures of shaded hues
break raindrops to states
of optic illusion which act as temptation.

Favour no seekers, oh Rainbow whom
by digging for legend will
selfishly follow roads right to your end.
Make therefore no friends
of illicit searchers for treasure, those
who see you as meant lure
for embellishing retrousséd wealth.

Rainbow you cover your real blessings
in pseudo-gilt with which
ingratiates have become obsessed.

Sedate then all lucre-lust with a curved
root at each toe of your
rain-augmented foot to waylay theft.

Divert and deflect looters with luminous
know-how and curl into
spacial deception before desecration.

Bedazzle all lechers by preventing entry
to any pretentious view
of your sensitive and tremulous end.


You as writhe of kaleidoscope can keep
away crooked schemers
by retaining a varisome irridescence.

Alive with mysterious rays
behave like a ghost loathing the sun, be
as invisible, turn pale, fade,
and disappear to invalidate trespass.


Stretch out your tracery uncontrolled,
a beauteous vision who keeps
her vaulted prism a glorious whole.


Rainbow hide what is always your own

from blind passers by with

greedy spade-eyes, stay unmolested.

    Oh my lady so much about rainbows and so beautifully expressed.

    Post-shower Rainbow has fallen here to do magic with wonderful imagery. We say hello to shiny loop. Brilliantly crescented magic of arc-perfection is potted in gold. This rainbow covers the real blessing. Valued prism reflects wonderful colours that value more. Rainbow appears and disappears but wonderful sense this gives. An interesting poem is shared with excellent presentation.
