Curves and Paint and Rain

I can’t touch the curve of a rainbow,
or use its’ colors to paint
Who counts the drops in a downpour?

Don’t be silly!

But my heart is a stubborn thing sometimes,
and it thinks: “All you have to do is try.
The first thing you must do is reach.”

So, we painted stories without end
I felt the tender hues of your curves,
and I tossed aside my umbrella
as we began to count the rain

I was happy with imagery too, thank you. I know it's probably cliché, but I've always felt a particular attachment to rainbows, but I have, so far, avoided the urge to look for their end, LOL. Glad you liked this one.

the magic of love! I really like the mixture of touching the intangible curve of the rainbow, feeling the curves of your tender hues and the rather impossible task of counting raindrops. All very esoteric and wonderful! ~ Geez.

Comments and critique are vital to this site!
Even if you just say: I liked this story or your spelling
of a word is wrong, take the time to write a line or two
and comment. Your fellow poets will thank you!

Thanks Geez! This was a fun write for me.

Oh I could here that so clearly in the end.
Past the wonder of the first few drops of a gentle storm all the way to the peaceful rainbow.
Well, it was there in my mind.
What a beauty, Mike,

THE MARK

If you take the time to read a poem then take the time to let the author know you were there. Study it and form an opinion as well, even if it means going back to it more than once. That is basic critique, what Neopoet is all about.

The thunder seems to always come before the rainbows, so I it feels like rainbows are a kind of peace offering from storms, as well as their inspiration for this piece.
