SEIZE THE NIGHT

Trembling
with a kind of fascination
 I climbed a majestic Moonbow in the sky


Rushed 
till I reached the heavens. 

Resting  
on the sky,
soaring above the clouds,
half swooning with terror and delight
I take my first glimpse around me, 

Inhale 

the night air, 
Sipping cool drops of refreshing  moonbeams.
Ah!  soothing, calming influence on the mind.

woke with a start, 
out of breath, was this a dream and all in my head? 














They say Moonbows are rainbows that are a rare sight, a night time phenomena, the biggest chance you have of ever seeing a moonbow is when the moon is full (or near to full), when it’s the brightest, but there are other conditions required. The sky has to be very dark (close to black), and, of course, there must been rain falling opposite to the moon. 
now for you all join in some fun go visit Friday flash 55 
over at G-man's house of fun.

  14. I saw a moonbow a few years ago. You live long enough you think you've heard of everything. But I couldn't believe my eyes. Someone found a link to moonbows for me. At 50, I am always ready to learn something new.
    love your poem, very passionate.
