Trembling with a kind of fascination I climbed a majestic Moonbow in the sky
till I reached the heavens.
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.
The night sky is a Maxfield Parrish blue –
the moon spills light on the stony path,
leaves cascading like flakes of snow,
caught in blades of grass,
they dance for me like stars in infinite space,
the trees aware that autumn will soon be gone,
Birds settle in the remaining leaves,
hoping to survive the coming frost.
