I Stood in a Rainbow
When I was a youngster of ten or eleven.
We never spoke of God and Jesus then,
But now I know it was a miracle from Heaven.
I was too interested in all the colors on my hands,
Arms and face that were there for me to see.
I never thought of how special this event was
For it just filled me with such happiness and glee.
My sister and I danced in and out of the rainbow,
As it ended in the middle of our country lane.
I wish I could again taste the hues upon my tongue,
Feel the warmth of the rainbow and the sprinkle of the rain.
As children, we never really understood,
What a blessed, wonderful gift this truly was,
As God sent the rainbow, especially for us-
To give us joy and happiness, simply because.

I am the middle daughter of three girls whose mother was a stay-at-home mom. She influenced me with poetry, music, and the arts. Dad was a hardworking man; he instilled a strong work ethic as well as faith in God and strong moral values in all of his children. A combination of family, friends, and aquaintances, along with health issues, loss of loved ones, and daily challenges contribute to my poetry. My sisters and I relied on our imaginations and Mother Nature for entertainment as we grew up in the 1950s. Standing in a rainbow was truly one of the most memorable moments of my childhood.
