Carpe Diem, #10 rainbow

Good day to you all, haijin, visitors and passers,

Another day in Carpe Diem haiku paradise ... it's already the 10th day of this daily haiku meme and I am glad that it looks like a success. I have read wonderful haiku posted by several haiku poets. It's really a joy to see how different haiku are ... I would like to say 'chapeau' or 'Hats off' to all those who have contributed their haiku here.

Today the colorful rainbow is the prompt. Rainbows are wonderful to see ... it's a holy symbol of God that he will never will cause a flood again as He did in the time of Noe. It's really a joy to see the rainbow and all the wonderful myths the rainbow has given us. For example: 'at the end of the rainbow you can find a jar filled with gold' or 'the rainbow is a bridge to Heaven'. I am sure you, my dear visitors, will know a lot of stories and myths about the rainbow.

bridge to heaven
walking upon the colorful bow
towards eternity

This prompt will be staying on 'till October 11th 11.59 AM (CET). The next prompt will be samurai and will be published October 10th somewhere around 10.00 PM (CET)

Have fun an be inspired. Share your masterpieces with Carpe Diem, a daily haiku meme.
