A RAINBOW VALLEY ~ An Acrostic Sonnet for ANGELA




A RAINBOW ~ a combination of


RAIN & SUNSHINE ~ two opposites

ALWAYS speaks of GOD's promise

"I WILL love the Earth  ~ and I will


BY FLOOD again !"  So remember whenever

ONE sees a RAINBOW ~ To thank GOD 

WITHOUT WHOM ~ there would be no LIFE ! 


VALLEY of RAINBOWS ~ New Zealand

A LONG way from the UK (11,500 miles !)

LOVELY COUNTRY ~ and I know ANGELA will .....

LOVE New Zealand ~ working there for a YEAR !

EVERY DAY ~ We will miss each other  ~ but a

YEAR passes quickly when you are in LOVE !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love A & B XOX



to honour those who died in the massacre was AWESOME !

I love "OVER THE RAINBOW" and her rendition was straight

form her loving heart ~ If you can listen to it without crying

You're not HUMAN ~ The song is dedicated to MAXINE ~ OK !

        What a beautiful picture and appealing song - - glad I was able to pop in for a few moments and caught this sad-happy posting on an imminent parting of twelve months - - best wishes to Angela as she discovers the grandeur of New Zealand. As your sonnet makes clear dear Brian -time flows by so quickly when love's in the air.

              It's been a while since I've seen an acrostic poem and didn't know that a sonnet could be created in that format. I loved the creative verses you incorporated with the letters!

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                Thanks for reading ELIZABETH and your comments ! Some of us are CLASSICAL Poets and like writing ACROSTICS and SONNETS etc. I like an ACROSTIC that has 14 letters and then I can write it in SONNET FORM. It is in BLANK VERSE ~ OK ~ My Fiancee is a PHYSIOTHERAPIST and she is going to New Zealand on a WORK EXCHANGE For a year on the 12th MAY. Thanks for being my MPS Friend ~ YOURS BRIAN (UK)

                • elizabethshadow

                  I can see that now! Thank you for informing me. I'm so happy that you have a fiance, so congratulations! I bet she'll have a great time in New Zealand pursuing a career she'll love.

                  Rainbows are special, they re-affirm God's Covenant with us all.

                  • BRIAN & ANGELA

                    Thanks ANDY ~ Your strong Christian Faith ~ shines through in your Life ~ Poetry and Comments ~ Every Blessing ~ BRIAN

                    • BRIAN & ANGELA

                      THANKS FOR YOUR ASSURANCE SISTER ~ Yesterday on the Ladies @ Church we call Aunty Audrey gave us a SCRIPTURE which said "The LORD watch between us while we are apart !" So we will be sad and some days (Fridays !) lonely but never worried. New Zealand is one of the safest Countries in the WORLD and the ALL BLACKS (NZ Rugby Team) are all Gentlemen especially the Maoris ! Maxine is as you know from MANCHESTER. Every Blessing for this Week Abrazos Grandes de tus Hermanos ANGELA y BRIAN @@@@@@@
