So, the prompt for this week's Bus (here) is...colour. (And yes, I know I've a meme to do as well...I'll get to that next week).
I have a few colour poems...a red one back here and a blue one over here, for example. The one I'm going to post today though is one I wrote back in January of this year about...oh, you know...lots of colours in an easily recognisable arc. I haven't done much with it yet...partly because I suspect it is the kind of poem that will make some people cringe...and indeed sometimes I might well be one of those 'some people' (on the whole I'm not desperately keen on anything to do with rainbows, angels, waffly spirituality or anything even vaguely in that direction – remember this poem 'inspirationalpoet.com'... not the work of a rainbow poet is it?). And yet...and yet... this is the poem that I have written. It started with a vision of a person on a cliff edge I had one time.

So - have I lost the plot? And what was the plot anyway? I think I've forgotten...
For those of you who only call in for the Bus my other posts this week were mainly musical – a Rosenthal, a Reid and a Rusby (the Rusby with free poem). There was kind of a flying theme too.
Originally from the north of England, I live in Angus, Scotland where I walk a lot, think a lot, listen to lots of music, sometimes write poems, sometimes read poems out to other people, sometimes write songs, read all kinds of odd things, watch a bit...oh and I look after my family too.
I sometimes organise poetry and music events - details are usually here (though nothing coming up in the near future). This year I went travelling with my family - photos and notes are here. Now we're back I have moved to a new regular blog - it is here.
More about the song
You can buy my book (published 2008) from my website if you fancy it (go to 'book' page) or from www.amazon.co.uk if you prefer the comfort of the multinational corporation. My book is printed on recycled paper and card. I have 12 different poetry postcards available too.
