How to catch a rainbow with poetry

Updated on August 10, 2012
Source

Brief Summary

I’ve seen a rainbow before in the past, but never before like this with my wife, and at a moment’s notice. The funny thing is everything was in place for this photo to be captured, so this makes me think a great deal about the universe, time, and chance. What’s the probability of such a synchronized happening to have occurred, wow is all I could think of on that very day.

I really caught a rainbow


I recently been learning to take pictures and also to use my words in ways to describe things I had never been able to do before joining hubpages, because I didn’t have such a given purpose to do so back then. So, what I think propels me to read, and write even more differing things besides many of my favorite subjects, is the fact that I now have a much more larger capacity for learning, and found an important driven purpose today for sure.



capturing a rainbow

The other day I caught a rainbow in the palm of my hands,

This wasn’t just any old shabby colored bow neither

This one was very unique indeed

it had more colors then the average rounded spectrum

A high class Rainbow if I do say so myself

Quite surprised I was

I'll never forget that awesome day

After anxiously prying open my car door with twisted head

spinning quickly towards the right

low and behold

there it was, staring at me with such an intensity of multicolored brightness

You know that radiant and ultra bright glow

With camcorder not present I had to resort to drastic measures

Mobile Smart phone had to suffice,

low quality image was how I had to pay the price

Just look at that Rainbow

No zoom or close up was used

I felt robbed

of a truly awesome moment captured by substandard optic tool

that feeling of not catching what you've always wanted

but

it was way to far out of reach

life for a brief millisecond had ceased

to exist

and then my mind snapped out of its micro cosmic depressive shift

for I had still captured what was verifiable

it was authentic

It is mine

So now, I'm super proud

That I've actually captured myself a Rainbow for the very first time

I captured this image as I got out of my car, and it was so cool!

      Hey Josh, yeah I been giving it a try here and there with prose poetry, and boy is it fun, I think it allows us poets to rest a bit, and simply let loose in prose form, and it works wonders for sure. Have fun bro.

      Thanks for the cool visit too, and for sharing with me.

      BEAUTIFUL! I love the line, "a high class Rainbow if I do say so myself" - from a high class poet whose words are rising to the heavens!

      Serendipity - that's my word for you. Way to capture an opportunity. Have a great day!
