Head on over to Tabatha Yeatts: The Opposite of Indifference, where this week's Poetry Friday is being hosted. Thank you, Tabatha for hosting everything poetic this week!
Okay, Linda, I did it.
Thank you for the gritty grain of an idea you left in my comments from my previous post.
And thank you Stacey for the idea for the "I Wish" poems from your Sunday, June 24 post. I combined the two thoughts with my post from yesterday.
Two Rainbows and the Moon
I wish for you bright days ahead,
Joys full within your soul,
A happiness that grows within,
As waves to shoreline roll.
I wish your days be long and light
With butterflies and breezes;
I wish for you the clearest skies
And nights with firefly teases.
When rain quenches the dry land's thirst,
May drops pit-pat a tune
And after that, be overhead
Two rainbows and the moon,
Reminders that forever more
Is just around the bend;
The past has just slipped past us and
To that we've put an end,
Today is what we have to live,
To love, to laugh, to dream;
Don't let it slip away without
Your dance, your song, your gleam.
And though some days hold back the sun
Remember very soon
To look above and see my wish:
Two rainbows and the moon.
