Throwback Friday, My Rainbow, by Ivor Steven

Every time I see a rainbow, I see reflections of colours and life beyond the sky.


My Rainbow


Over mountains, over a distant sky

Blazing hues of African butterflies

Fluttering reflections of our last goodbyes


Did you see my yesterday rainbow

She’s ruby red, yellow and blue

The heavenly ring, in everyone’s view


Above you, a perfect archway

Behind you, a forever shining sun-ray

Around you, a golden halo everyday



Ivor Steven (c)  March 2019


G’day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I’m an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I’ve been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I’ve been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.
