My Rainbow

Over mountains, into a distant sky

Blazing hues of African butterflies

Sparkling reflections of our last goodbye

 

Did you see my yesterday rainbow

She’s ruby red, yellow and blue

The heavenly ring, in everyone’s view

 

Above you, a perfect archway

Behind you, a forever shining sun-ray

Around you, a golden halo everyday

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Another rainbow song for you today, Ivor! You and your poetry are rainbows in my life! πŸ™‚

    When it rain it pours but you didn’t even notice
    It ain’t rainin’ anymore, it’s hard to breathe when all you know is
    The struggle of staying above, the rising water line

    Well, the sky is finally opened, the rain and wind stopped blowin’
    But you’re stuck out in the same old storm again
    You hold tight to your umbrella, but darlin’ I’m just tryin’ to tell ya
    That there’s always been a rainbow hangin’ over your head

    If you could see what I see, you’d be blinded by the colours
    Yellow, red and orange and green, and at least a million others
    So tie up the bow, take off your coat and take a look around

    ‘Cause the sky is finally opened, the rain and wind stopped blowin’
    But you’re stuck out in the same old storm again
    You hold tight to your umbrella, oh darlin’ I’m just tryin’ to tell ya
    That there’s always been a rainbow hangin’ over your head

    Oh, tie up the bow, take off your coat and take a look around
    Everything is alright now

    It’ll all be alright…

    1. Thank you Punam, I heard the song first, and the genuine feeling of her beautiful voice and lyrics inspired me to write this poem, I was enraptured and I hope my poem did her sweet voice justice
