...leading up to twilight's climax!
The rainbow lasted quite a while...pictures don't do justice to the most vibrant rainbow I've ever seen!
Soft blended hues of green-gray-blues
Unravels a symphonic haze
Like cello-tune, yellow-maroon
Empyrean boon woos mortal gaze
Landscape sprawls rife with earth’s still-life
Nature employs Beauty’s baton
Where Maestro of mercy and love
Composes hymns to look upon
Gold-gilded leaf, dust-spangled sheaf
Heath, haloed with amethyst mist
Sun-dazzled rills, blue-bathed foothills
Amber-anointed dusk, musk-kissed
Vermilion tints and russet glints
Prelude to crowning crescendo
Tempo of rain on burnished main
Cadence of poplar, birch, willow
Percussion-plume, rainbow in bloom
Minstrels attired in grass and wood
Coral and purple, orchestral
…and Author’s assent, 'it is good'
