The Rainbow was smiling (written by Rose )

High under the rainbow, I wanted to be.
Watching him from the crown of a tree.
I climbed up the tree near to the rainbow,
Above me the sky and beneath me a meadow.

To touch the sky once, I wanted to try,
though I should know that the sky is too high.
I stretched my arms as high as I could.
Haha, now I know, this idea had been not so good.

Feeling my slipping, I started to scream.
Hoping it would be just a very bad dream.
The branch beneath me suddenly broke.
At first, I was thinking, "what a terrible joke!"

A joke is just fun, but that wasn't so funny.
I fell from the tree, landed on a very cute bunny.
That I had not hurt it that made me relieved,
and he seemed even not to be so very aggrieved.

I looked up the sky, stared for a while,
and the beautiful rainbow, he seemed to smile.
It was funny to see how I sat there in the grass.
How I sat on the ground, on my poor aching ass.

Hahaha, Mishaikh, maybe I should tell you my ideas for my poems and you write the words, it seems you find always the better ones than me.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my poem and of course thanks for your comment.

I closed my eyes and opened my heart, looked up the sky, spread my hands, and there I found the smiling rainbow resting on my hands.  I didn't open my eyes and captured the rainbow in my smile.

Thanks Rose for such nice poem.

Thanks, dear Kal, we express what we feel, sometimes is it melancholy and sadness, sometimes happiness and cheerfulness. Life isn't the same every day and so are our feelings and our poems.

Important is, that and what we have to say.

I read your last blog with your poem "When I can.."  and I left a comment for you.

You are a young lady with a very sensitive mind, at least I think so.

I like your writings, poems and Especially your talent for understanding about inner sensitive things.You can describe them very nicely.

Your writings always inspiring.

Thanks a lot, dear Rose!
