    I love how all of the little sections are haikus... And as hard as it is to write a beautiful haiku, you've wrote so many on the same topic. (Report) Reply

    this is so beautifully written..I could see each colour of the rainbow...embracing my heart...whispers of the endless sky...reassuring....I am here....I exist....if only you can reach out...patiently awaiting.... (Report) Reply

    So many different ways to view rainbows - rainbows are truly inspirational and the rainbows in Washington State are magnificent.

    This is as delicate as the celestial dance in the skies and as piercing as a sun breaking through the heavens. I enjoy the anthropomorphic elements and the progression in this sprawling work, Lorraine: the rainbow of delight within all of us. Universally appealing while effortlessly ponderous. The theme of the hidden colors within all visible light works well within the haiku form. You've managed to present an articulate and engaging poem! Thanks for sharing! Excellent work; sorry about the delay on my reciprocation to your open kindness. Warm regards, John. (Report) Reply

    Lorraine, you are indeed 'The Queen of Haiku!
    What a beautiful though long series of Haiku.
    Words flow smoothly like The River Shannon.
    The mystic colours are stunning and I have given this amazing Haiku a 10+++++++ (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
