Colours Of A Rainbow : ROY G.BIV.



A question asked

"What can they be?"

The colours of a rainbow.

Remember ROY G.BIV.



Red being the longest

A vibrant curved hue

With Violet the shortest

This I share with you.


Every other colour

In between so safely.

Our world so bright

Mesmerising beauty.



Red so deeply vibrant

So deeply sensuous.

Orange astounding

Refreshingly wondrous.


Yellow for that sunshine

Mother Nature's glowing.

Green fresh blades of grass

Tender and loving.


Blue the wondrous sky

Soft clouds awaiting.

Indigo stirring

A heart now singing.


Violet magnetic

That magical pull.

A wondrous aroma

Each day oh so full.


I also found my own

Sparkling pot of gold.

My heart so happy

My story to be told.


Follow me to a wondrous

World so very enchanting.

Believe and you will see

Colours so mesmerizing.

    Colours on the palette of an artist of life. White being the colour Of virginal snow; Yellow the shade Of the sunshine's glow. x As green as the grass Tender yet strong; The sky so blue Sweet...

    This simple little poem hopefully proves that we do not always need long words to pass that message of contentment and happiness along. I hope you enjoy. Life is so precious Moments to care; Gems...

Beautiful Eddy as always. This one reminded me of Kevin, because he taught art and one of the things he taught was ROYGBIV to his students. And I must have heard this term a million times in my home during that time. Love it though and love that it reminds me of him. Hope you are having a wonderful day and have of course voted up and shared all other!!

Very clever. Well put together and lovely pics. Rainbows are so mystical, we often get an arc with 3 or 4 in it all at once, right over the top of the thatched cottages, it's a beautiful sight. Great poem Eddy.

If anyone can "take a rainbow and sparkle it with dew" cover it with beauty and show us a thing or two, Eddy sure can! You've just showed there IS a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, its what we're looking for ;)

Voted up and awesome.

What a bright, cheerful and colorful poem Eddy. It is so like you to create something beautiful such as this. It would be lovely to see a rainbow today but not likely. It is cold, dreary and raining in Houston today. So the rainbows will have to be those in my memories and heart. Up and beautiful votes and will share your joyous message with others. (BTW...the video at the top does not play. Says it has been blocked from viewing. Thought that you might wish to know.)

Rainbows are a special sign for me. I tend to associate them with loved ones who have passed on. I always see, hear or READ something a bout a rainbow when I have just finished reaching out to someone. That's what happened with your hub. So Eddy, I thank you.

I never heard of Roy G. Biv but it is an acronym I will never forget.

Many blessings and much love to you.
