Mr. Rainbow

Mr. Rainbow attracted me
He Killed me with his charming shots
So I read more about him
And here's what I got..

Mr. Rainbow
----------------

Through crystal clear elegancy
passes the magic of the light,
to split the droplets' transparency,
and turn it to a colorful delight.

Look at the horizon and see
it's adorned with a bow;
violet, blue, red and green
indigo, orange and yellow.

No brush strokes, no paints, nor colors
on canvas could do -in the longest run,
what a few dangled rain drops- in moments
could do when gently kissed by the sun.

This is a beautiful write, where you let your Spirit see the beauty around.
Some find it hard to detach from the vision of the Eyes and use the most powerful of all sight feelings.
There are many that cannot walk within the petals of a rose, yet our Desert Rose has that ability,
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

say so dear Ian..Highly appreciate
your visit and your gentle comment.

I like the structure of introduction then poem, but the content is not sufficiently original to cover the prosodic limitations.
if you are going to rhyme then you might as well use the other aspects of prosody as well, like meter. This reads as rhymed prose.

And here what I got.. [either-
And here's what I got.. [or
And hear what I got..

count the stressed syllables in each line if you want to write structured poetry.. Here are some references.

Meter is not rocket science, it is just hearing the sound of the English language, and therefore though it does vary with different regional accents, it does substantially become quite easy to parse. As Stan has noted, most dictionaries provide phonetic illustration of syllable stresses.

cheers,
Jess
