Rainbow Street


While walking down whimsical Rainbow Street,
A menacing shadow I chanced to meet.
“Hello, there, shadow,” I said with great charm,
“I certainly hope you’ll do me no harm.
As you can see I have nothing to do
But walk down the street, enjoying the view.
I hope you’ll be kind and gentle to me,
And let me go down the street clear and free.”
The shadow whimpered and slithered away
And left me alone to go on my way,
Greeting whomever I happened to meet,
While strolling down whimsical Rainbow Street.

  1. sweet rainbow footsteps
    your generous labyrinth
    leads souls to find peace

  2. Hi!
    Great shot! Love that pink building. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  3. Smart shadow not to tackle such joy and happiness as radiates from the picture and the words and the moment.

  4. There’s such a gentleness, kindness, openness radiating from you that all danger will slither away from you. You are blessed; hold the beauty of Rainbow Street in midday in your heart against any menace. Sunday Smiles, Margaret

  5. The photo made me think of a song “Sunny side of the street”!!
    Love the pink building!!

  6. I love the idea of walking down a colorful, whimsical street in the middle of the day , with nothing to do but stroll and take in the lovely view. Shadow may be menacing but short lived on such a day. Put them away and enjoy the day my dear. Lovely post.

  7. Pretty street scene. Love the bold colours.

  8. You romp in light and darkness, too.
    Directing photons through and through
    And this we know well to be true:

    Shadows are afraid of You.


  9. I like your poem and photo to match!

  10. That looks like a nice spot to stop for lunch if it wasn’t too hot, and even if it was in the shade, it’d be cheerful. Have a lovely week.

  11. What a clever poem–I love the name “Rainbow Street”. You just continue to amaze and amuse me with your rhymes. Mickie
