Nolan's picture

There's a rainbow in my soul
And the rainbow never ends

My stories

double every day

hear the storm hear the rain fall tell her my love tell her it all i will wait once more over again tell her so that she will know ~ thoughts of joy...


honey eyes chocolate eyes eve's eyes mother's eyes brown is the sand brown the earth muddy water mercy of the storm white of the sea heaven's eyes...

steam and track

the surf foam's sliding white to and fro now rise then fall golden dunes shifting sands misty sprays in rainbow sky wind hush rush rush past forever...

strong of faith

the lord bless and show mercy be your comfort and refuge may he keep you from harm in need bring trust bring hope provide in loving abundance may all...

persevering faith enduring love

And Jacob served seven years for Rachel; for the love he had to her. honey sweet brown eyes embrace my riches my hope my treasure how warm how soft...

rocking chair

Yes Richard, "somewhere they pause and remember" "generations of childhood". What would a porch be without a rocking chair? A witness from the cradle to the grave, a trusted friend.

By the way I really like the poems more,

helen or cleopatra

Indeed. They say one woman can bring a kingdom to it's knees. The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.

A very good poem and it does make sense but I have to admit I don't understand all of it.

I know some good ones too, a cowboy one, "played five aces, now playing harp". Here is one for an unknown british soldier simply, "he didn't keep his head down".
