          Rainbow In Ice
                                       by Ralph Fletcher

          I found a little rainbow
          trapped in a chunk of ice.
          Iced rainbows are seldom seen:
          I don't expect to see one twice.

          It stayed outside my window
          where the wind would keep it cold;
          there were seven strands of color
          and a tiny pot of gold.

          All winter long I studied it,
          how the yellow rubbed the green;
          red and indigo made bookends,
          while the blue nestled in between.

          I wondered where it came from,
          this orphan rainbow child,
          and though I longed to tame it,
          I knew to keep it wild.

          One warm March day the rainbow left,
          on brilliant wings it flew;
          maybe I'll see it, fully grown,
          when summer storms pass through.


  1. Love Rainbow in Ice. It was one of my favorite poems in WATER PLANET. I'm glad you shared it here today!

  2. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
