Cloudburst Of Color

Updated on March 31, 2011

 This hub is dedicated to Gus The Red Neck who challenged me on this concept so here it is Mr. Gus Gus, I hope it meets your standards......



As they trickle from sky the heaven

Falling in form one through seven

Onto an arc made of white

Adding pigments stained so bright


Falling together full of grace

Splashing in uniform nicely in place

As the fluffy white clouds travel along

Humming and chirping a colorful song


Coating the arc with magical colors

White so little now getting smaller

The arc reaching so far way up high

Like a band of colors way in the sky


As the raindrops dance on top the arc

Creating a sight in the eye that sparks

As it places its tiny feet to step

As it travels along skipping its pep


Extending its wavelength ray of light

Painting it pretty what a beautiful sight

Raindrops filled with saturation

What a rewarding glowing translation


What started so tiny in liquid scheme

Evaded into a burst of a color beam

A rainbow that grew out of rain

Claiming the skies as its home domain

      Hi Bella - Now, how did I know that this would be so remarkably fine a poem? I did - and it was. Everyone who read it and commented thought so, too. I'm happy for someone who can do such good writing.

      Gus :-)))

      I find the colors are more than what you say. Hiding beneath this facade of images born in rain. I love this one a lot.

      From the land of primary colors, a pot of god for our lovely Ms. Bella. It seems as quite clear that puffy white spheres tell a sweet tune of "sparkles" and "glowing translation."

      Ahhh, a poem of rich color for us artists - thank you, thank you!!!
