Ever see a rainbow lit up by a sunset?
Lightning forking across darkening skies
Neon lights stripteasing the night threats
Thunder truck rolling between your eyes
Ever stood waiting in a pool of starlight?
Colours mixing on burning streets of oil
Sirens announcing the coming firefight
Temperatures blistering as eyes recoil
Ever felt the heat of a stray arrow’s kiss?
The rose petal splash of crimson fears
Passions cloud over and lovers reminisce
Blindfolding their eyes with lambswool tears
Ever wondered how to ignite the new day?
Set gasoline fires on your demon badlands
Lonely back road promises drive them away
Covering your eyes you take both my hands
Forever we will journey in this quiet disguise.
(Just a bit of daily post one word prompting imaginative writing inspired by setting foot outside my motel room tonight in Tucumcari, New Mexico and seeing this amazing sunset rainbow).
