A rainbow is a smile
sent by the sun
to let us know
rain can be fun.

   Rainbows have always been magical to me.  They aren't predictable.  They always appear as a surprise gift.  I once saw a rainbow from above. I was in an airplane and instead of being an arc it was a full circle.  Now that was magic.  What do you know about rainbows?  Perhaps you'd like to do some research on rainbows.
  What are you doing fun today?  Can you try writing a poem about something fun?  Or how about writing a silly nonsense verse?  Just have good time with your writing.

  Add some fun to the world today-- 
smile, Smile, SMILE!


  1. Dear Joy,
    I enjoyed seeing a double rainbow while visiting the mountains in Jefferson County, Colorado!.

    The picture you took is amazing. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Love, Joan
