There are rainbows on the walls
on my ceiling, on the floor

Little spots of color
that were never there before

Each splash is vibrant, energized;
yet so completely still

I wish I could somehow catch them
and drink of rainbows my fill


The author's comments:
This was inspired by a very special morning where I found, literally, rainbows all around my room.

I was very hesitant about that last line, because when I read it in my head it sounded right but when I asked people to read it aloud it didn't...it's one of those ones where there's a weird pause in the middle that if you don't know it's there it sounds really off.

Aww! I love this! So simple and yet so poetic...:) The only thing was the last line; "and drink of rainbows my fill." The placement of "of" made it a tad awkward, though now as I say it a few times it seems to flow better each time...Good job! 5 stars :)
