Somewhere over the Rainbow

2 Comments

This original poem called 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' by London poet, Elle Smith who associates that next place beautifully as being both happy and sad:

 

Somewhere over the Rainbow

 

 … is a place where happiness and sadness meet,

 

… beauty in the rainbow on earth for just a heartbeat.

 

… smiles and tears collide,

 

… but only temporarily this beauty doth reside.

Thank you for the sweet cry, Elle. This song has dwelled in my heart for decades. It is such an intense song of searching … longing … yearning. Which Elle totally evokes in this brief poem. We are just one heartbeat between Kansas … and Oz.
