A Rainbow Is... Poem by Loyd C Taylor Sr

A Rainbow Is...

Rating: 5.0

A Rainbow is…

An undeniable natural beauty,
Appearing mysteriously,
Seven colors of grandeur rare.
Light touching droplets in the air,
From earthly showers or water spray,
Opposite the sun, observed at day.

Arrayed in brilliant colors glow,
Canvassed as a beauty bow;
Red, orange, yellow, green,
indigo, blue, violet, all are seen.
A sign of God's mercy we know,
Since earth beheld the first Rainbow.

Rainbows are

Not reproducible by mortal man,
Created by our Maker's hands;
As breathlessly we stare,
A masterpiece, none can compare.
More than treasured pots of gold,
All this and more in the Rainbow.

Topic(s) of this poem: acrostic,nature,rainbow
When I wrote this poem in 2008, I started with an acrostic and it grew into a much more extensive poem. In my original, I have several colors worked into the letters as well.
I do hope you enjoy it,
Loyd, the simple poet.

Stunning write, you've captured everything a rainbow is (and more!) No one could create anything more magnificent with their bare hands and you conveyed this perfelctly in your poetry. God's work reigns supreme. HG: -) xx

I never tire of looking at a rainbow, its beauty majestic, and the reason why it is there to remind us as to why we are grateful for everything around us, it is a second chance to live upon this earth that was given to us in faith by our lord God, how can one not love it...and each colour a shade of life here on earth...wonderful write.
