Friends are linked in thoughts, whatever the time, where ever, and rainbows and bridges are just a way of connecting thoughts

Your poem is beautiful! You have special talent. Your imagination is marvelous! I really like how you used the rainbow and the bridge to show how you can use your imagination to stay connected to your friends that are so far away. That is awesome.

Arched Across The Sky

Rainbows created my imagination
As it arched across the sky
On one end there sat you
At the other end, there sat I

Imagining I could slide across
Over the rainbow to the end
There would be my pot of gold
The sweet love of my dear friend

The rainbow is a connection
Like a bridge from me to you
It appears joined by sunlight
Then the grey skies turn to blue

Arriving after the rainstorms
It became so evident to me
Thoughts of love follow rainbows
They arched right across the sea

A colourful arching rainbow
It has no gate, it has no door
It reaches from friend to friend
It arches from shore to shore

I smiled up today at the sky
How far would my loving smile go
It slid right over to the other side
The other end of the coloured rainbow

I really enjoyed this poem. My friend is leaving for University in the fall and I am staying home. He and I are very close and I wanted to look around for some poems to give me a little help. I have so many things I want to say, but when I try I end up repeating myself or dancing around what I truly what to say. This poem used a beautiful symbol to explore and show what friendship really is. I know feel like I have an idea or where to go with my poem( a better idea anyway) Thanks.
