Rainbow Surfing

A seven coloured arc paints the sky.
With a long surfboard in hand,
a small boy muses a rainbow ride,
as his golden quest dawns on the horizon-
“ Seagulls, fly me to this shining bow,
and slide me over the band,
before its magic wanes or I grow”.

    A joyous poetic excursion back into childhood.Upon reading the title of this poem I was immediately reminded of Judy Garland’s timeless, “Somewhere over the rainbow ” in ” The Wizard of Oz “
