raining sunset--
a rainbow fades
into the horizon


—Kala Ramesh

    Under this wonder
    of Nature
    the swallows fly again

    The seeing eye dog
    Is tentatively sniffing
    Chrysanthemums

    above the clouds
    glancing the rainbow--
    evening rush hour traffic

    grape clusters
    in the end of autumn
    prey for the hungry birds

    a night ride
    the wind blows
    into my smiling face

    blowing bubbles
    rainbows burst
    on blades of grass

    rainbow in the sea -
    the arc of colours
    melts into the waters

    Autumn rainbow--
    Over the rocks,
    A clear stream flowing

    Collin, great verse.

    such beautiful responses. . .
    thank you all -

    mountain dips
    allowing the rainbow
    to arch

    the train
    passes before
    the rainbow fades

    one haunting rainbow
    in the misty aftermath
    alone in its touch

    lovely tiny words, Kala


    in my outdoor shower
    I touch spiderwebs
    and rainbows

    three bright jewels
    blink awake
