A Night Rainbow, The Moonbow

A Night Rainbow, The Moonbow

A Poem by Confuser

Waiting for Love


Night’s Rainbow, The MoonBow

A rainbow glistened in a dark sky

Spreading through starlight

Thunder roared as lonely clouds

Ripped into the atmosphere

Upon my wave of hopefulness

I search for you my dear


Miraculous Lights twinkle

Gleaming brilliant colors flow

Into my pleading heart and soul

I’ll wait forever, never to let go

Many years and many days

But nothing changed your plane


I danced for sweet rain to bring

You near, for the rare Moon’s

Bow to appear �" now I see

It’s half ring hidden in my memory


A hundred different ways to collide

With my propensity to laugh and cry

Waiting for drops to take my pain

Pretending my meek measures would

Make you smile, but life’s too short

For lonely clouds these parched days


Longing I asked the moon to come down low,

But the hellcats of hullabaloo said “oh no no”

You need only a mist to see his rainbow

Tenderly embrace our dark paradise

It calls for love’s blissful guise

Rainbow produced by the reflection of the moonlight, Moonbow, certainly a rare but must be a beautiful natural phenomenon.
Loved your imagery, the first 10 lines are my favourite, especially the given part is more than beautiful,

Thunder roared as lonely clouds
Ripped into the atmosphere
Upon my wave of hopefulness
I search for you my dear.

Well done, dear Dale.

edging on mysticism and the allure of lingering love. incredible imagery and description. Your use of words moulds it into a well crafted piece. I enjoyed this thoroughly

Never seen a moonbow obviously...but still, the very thought of looking at something so beautiful and rare....nature is so so so beautiful in my opinion...its beauty surpasses everything...nature and its many elements and phenomena have always inspired me as a poet...I can see that they inspire you too..
This sure is a very beautiful and poignant write!
Favourite lines: "It’s half ring hidden in my memory"...they are certainly not the heart of the piece but they really stood out for me...:))

Ethereal and emotive poem. I love the imagery of the Moonbow.

this is an exquisite poem. Beautiful lines and saturated with emotion. The italicized lines offsetting the stanzas. A hope deferred write. Wonderful to read. Sad, but wonderful.

Very beautifully penned, exquisitely filled with imagery delightfully envisioned, painting a mental image within your reader's mind that causes one to almost feel that they are there and can see what your heart penned to page sees in the creativity zone of your mind ... I enjoyed it more even than the first time my eyes were blessed to chance upon this delightful piece of poetry ...
