Rainbow Communications

The focus for the Rainbow Communications web-site is poetry.
These three books provide examples and guidelines
for many new, invented and traditional forms.

Hope you will enjoy discovering and experimenting with these forms.

Stay in the Company of Rainbows

Stay in the company of rainbows,
spiral the spectrum around your heart and vision.
Sprinkle stardust on the striped light
to out-twinkle the stars.

Stay in the company of rainbows
so color merges,
so color doubles and multiples
of abundance are possible.

Stay in the company of rainbows
as bridges to new dimensions,
as arches of connection.
The sky-smile hovers with light-changes.

Stay in the company of rainbows
high-humping toward heaven,
two-touching for grounding,
a wide sturdy stance to view the universe.
