rainbow ride

I glided up the rainbow
smooth and easy like an escalator

then sat upon a cloud
to soak up the magnificent views

trees, fields, rivers,
people scurrying about

fascinating but not stressful
coz it all felt rather distant

then decided to see how many
clouds I could coast about on

leapt from one to the other
to get a different outlook

gently the sun set in a blazing glory
time to return for supper so I

slide down a moonbeam
to arrive at my front door

nobody had missed me
but what wonderful fun I’d had


  1. i love this Kate! the rainbow ride and slide and no one missed you before you were gone too long – the playfulness and exuberance of your poem just warms my heart

  2. Once!
    Just once I’ve seen an actual rainbow over the sky above in my town, which happened so long ago.
    But love enjoying going with you on virtual tour of up above the world so high 🙂
