Hearing the Rainbow

January 18, 2015

Hearing the Rainbow.
An inspiring painting and poem about hearing a rainbow. It has never occurred to me before to listen to this weather phenomenon but I have thought about how it would feel to try each colour on:
Translucent in white,
serene in violet,
cosseted in indigo,
confident in blue,
comforted in green,
frightened in yellow,
self-conscious in orange,
attractive in red,
invisible in black.

I have entitled this poem ‘Over the Rainbow.’
Perhaps you can weave another way of sensing rainbows into your writing this week.

  1. Lovely… I will post a painting on my blog called “I am alive”, watercolour, which incorporated rainbow colours (not all of them) to accentuate the joyousness of being alive. Go to to view the work… your poem made me think of this work which I did a couple of years ago. The little bottles are based on insulin bottles… I have been a type 1 Diabetic for almost 50 years so in a way my life does come from a little bottle. The rainbow scarf is because I paint on silk. I LOVE COLOUR!

    • Hello Evelyn. Thank you for finding my blog. Pleased to see that your ‘I am alive’ watercolour has sold. It looks very vibrant! Also love the sunset over the river photograph. Good luck with your new blog. Judith
