Chasing Rainbows

A response to photo challenge #319 at mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com

Photo by Raine Nectar at Pixels.com

Appearance of seven bright colours

Breaking through the skies leads to a

Chase through the streets by some in a

Desperate (or plain daft) attempt to grab

Elven, pixie or Leprechaun treasure

Fate decrees though, by the time the hunters

Get to their multi-coloured target , the treasure will

Have been moved…to another end of another rainbow.

Crown

#writephoto #crown

Sat atop the hill of wheat

Circle of stone sits on throw of green

Ancient throne perhaps ?

Regal walk through a field of gold

A crowning glory

Before harvest time

Golden

#CYW #Gold

There’s nothing better than a summer sky

warm coloured tones of

corn or wheat growing in the farmers field

or maybe the thought

of sinking your toes into warm golden sands

before dipping them in the sea

breakfast dinner or tea – wonderous eggs

dipped with bread soldiers

for an afternoon feast

Western’s always had one of these in a movie,

as they rolled through wild American country on a search for

gold, minerals or prosperous plains of plenty

over rocky terrain, sandy deserts and swamps they’d travel

north south east, but mostly west on search for a fortune

Take your pick…colours of the rainbow await

Red, Green, Yellow, Gold and Blue (if you can get it)

no need for CD-R pens, the computer has done the marking for you

and its much neater than a scribble

so instead of you flipping the CD for a title

you know from the pic you took – its on the Disc!

#coloryourworld #cyw #gold

You’re precious to all,

Shining in the sunlight,

Magpie’s swoop at the sight of you

whilst Men seek out the places you play hide and seek

Not as hard as Iron your qualities valued up and down the land

formed to create a union Very hard to break

Bumblebees strive to create from the pollen they catch

something similar in the garden that match your wonderful colour

And Athletes meet up at great venues around the blue marble

for a chance that their hard work will have you resting around their necks

Fortune (acrostic)

Fortune

For as long as prospectors keep talking

Oregon’s wagon trail has attracted people far and wide

Round the wild valleys they roam

Trekking around the carved out valleys for

Unforetold riches from the Horde of Coins

Navigating the challenging terrain can be difficult

Enjoy your quest – but expect trouble along the gold scattered route.

Treasure

Treasure

Taken from merchant ships, by

Rascals of the seven seas

Every pirate worth their salty sea legs

Admires the prize of jewels, silver and gold doubloons

Some keep their precious horde hidden

Under tropical sands , deserted shores – only

Revealed many moons later by a younger

Explorer, following the pirates charts and maps

Acrostic Poetry

One of a Kind

Original

A tale of a jewel – told in acrostic form

 

Only you have possession of it –

Round the world you went

In search of something so

Great – captain Bones himself would be envious

Innovative, but beautiful – Dazzling to the eye

Never seen before by the jeweller – its unique

And women and men alike

Long to wear it on their hand.

A poetic response to another Golden response from Paralympics GB

(Hannah Cockcroft, winning Gold in Rio)

 

Have you been watching ?

A Magical moment in the Rio lights

New wheels speeding down the track to a Gold

Neutrals and rivals all –

Astounded – The British girl

Has taken it….

Speeding through the competition,

 

(who won the medal then ? answers clear to see!)
