We Part


Double rainbow up above
Here I sit and weep with love
Sadness reigns within my heart
Just to think that we must part
I won’t see you smile again
You won’t read the words I pen
We won’t share a drink or two
No more laughter, raucous, true.
Yet in my head you will live
And to you I’ll always give
My respect and all my love
Double rainbow up above.

  1. Feels like a really personal piece and its linear structure feels just right, The double rainbow motif adds something intriguing and unusual and is thought provoking.


  2. Parting physically but staying together in your heart. A beautiful sentiment.


  3. The concept of rainbows as symbolism has always intrigued me; since the inference to the covenant promise of God in Genesis, to the modern interpretations as rainbows bridging the earth and a happier place. So with that I love how you employ the double rainbow here, causing the reader to pause and question: Why two and not just one? You have, in effect, created a poem that forces the reader to dig beyond the surface representation of sadness of loss, to find the joy of remembrance. Your rainbows, like a double edged sword, serve two purposes, to cut quickly, but with a compassionate precision that eases the pain.


  4. Double rainbows are intriguing K. and they are indisputably beautiful ~ breathtaking.

    Thank you for your thoughts and comments ~ valued as ever.


  5. Sadness, but with the hope and promise of not one–but a double–rainbow. Gorgeous and sad at the same time. Well done, Polly!


  6. That’s very sad… Though I like to think double rainbows reflect outwards forever.

    And my selfish writer’s soul went “Oh Polly, never leave MEEEEEE!!!!” 😉


  7. I would never wish to Holly ~ life is life 😉

    I’ll never leave you x (you don’t get rid of me so easily!) heh-heh …
