where the rainbow rises (here)
'What do you see in a rainbow? Tell me!'
He was taken aback! He was pleasantly surprised. Just taking
a morning walk a few minutes ago, he stopped at the sidewalk
The al Fresco shaded by the big umbrellas was inviting.He seated
himself at an empty table. Not in the mood to talk to anyone so
he thought. Then just as suddenly a pretty lady walked past his
table. She hesitated. Turned around and joined him.
She smiled, he smiled back. Nothing special in him, he thought.
But she smiled! What got into her? And what a way to start a
'A rainbow? I see colors, lots of colors!' he said
'Yes, seven in all'she added, 'do you know them?'
'I cannot possibly recall' he said pointedly embarrassed
'Just remember, Richard of York Gave Battle in Vain'
Oh yes, that's the mnemonic, I remember now!
'Yes, and it goes in that order, red, orange, yellow, green, blue
indigo and violet. And that's not all! she quipped.
'Why, are there other new colors to add?'
'Not really, but yes! Not really colors but they are there!' she appeared
triumphant with a wisp of a smile
He was beginning to get uncomfortable. He was now into some
serious conversation and she had only been seated a few minutes.
And they were not even properly introduced and she was making
him look stupid
'There's infrared after red, and ultra-violet beyond violet, she continued.
.And they influenced certain situations.......'
'Ok, he interjected. ' I would rather see rainbow in a different light!'
'Yes', he said, cutting her off midway 'I see dreams beyond rainbow,'
he said with an intellectual grin. What one feels in oneself,
the inner self so to speak!'
'I had designs of such a feeling too, but I cannot place them' she confessed
'I'm an artist and a poet and I see them in a totally different context. It
floats in wavy psychedelic colors and invites.......'
'And kaleidoscopic too, perhaps....' she implored.
'Yes, perhaps too!'
'Hey, we've not even ordered coffee and this is going
to take all day!' he suddenly blurted out.
Yes, but I think I'll better be going now' she said rather abruptly
He was stunned for a moment. He had mentally prepared
himself to have her to stay longer. Some refreshments would
be in order. But she apparently took it as a hint to
chill out from there.
Just as she had appeared on the scene earlier she left in a jiffy.
She had the courtesy to give him a parting smile though and
off she went, without coffee.
He laid back on the chair with a tinge of regret and watched her go silently!

dreams beyond rainbow sky
check out the link of the original post here:
the story of Liu Ying (柳岩),
a daughter to Liu Shihe (刘士和),
the niece of Wang Min ( 王敏),
granddaughter of Liu Zhongyuan (柳宗元)
Liu Ying ((柳岩) was born on May 27, 1995 in Liangxiang hospital,
Fangshan district, Beijing City, a daughter to father Liu Shihe, and to
mother Peng Shuhua, the birth of Liu Ying remarks a historical mile stone
due to the complex family relation and history.
because at the time, when Liu Ying was born, her aunt Yan Ji, uncle Wu Jiahong
reside 5200 Kenwood, Chicago, IL, hyde park area, and they are at students /spouse
status, and when Liu Ying and her baby photos appear at Jiahong Wu (吴家洪)'s mail box,
when Jiahong carries the hand written letter to Ji Yan, they were amazed about the
unexpected marriage, and the baby girl,
Jiahong sighed, "Liu Ying, an infant girl, which is good lately, but by Chinese tradition,
Liu Ying's grandmother and parents may be upset since China boomer male birth, not
female birth, honestly, "
"I am sure Shihe Liu and Chuanzhen Peng will feel better if we spare a small amount of money
and give it to them on behalf of a young infant's growth and healthy benefits." persisted Ji Yan
with the permission of Jiahong Wu, Ji Yan (颜令宾) write back to Beijing, from Chicago,
offering some sisterly friendship and a small amount of cash so that her sister Shuhua feels
better about her baby daughter, and her husband Shihe Liu, and her mother in law Xiaosan Peng
not much communication after that, today is February 28, 2016, when Qiangjiao Kong (恐龙时)
|feels guilty, after Jiahong Wu benefits Jialiang Wu, Ai Hong Wu, decides to include Ji Yan's|
|close relative, Chuanzhen Peng, Chuanxian Peng, Min Wang, Shihe Liu, Simei Yan, Hounian Peng, things go dramatic, Shihe liu refuses to take support unless his relatives are included,|
|but we don't know Shihe liu's two borthers, two sisters, thus we write a story on Liu Ying, and Liu Ying's grandfather, thus people know she is a good lady, Liu Ying resides Beijing,|
|attending Beijing University currently, and will be happy to be an American resident if applicable.|

Onto hostile soil
Breaking down resistance
Creating a perfect foil
For disrupting the surface
To see what’s below
But, once you look
and see the decay,
You know it’s not worth the mental toil.

Kailah Angel Davila Oxford
simply think of our topics, and write,
near to where silence
fills my straining ears,
where long years
of searching end,
my old friend.
You take my hand
and in a glance
down a bright way
Blasphemy is bad,
Putin’s a weasel,
Ukraine is sad.
Spaghetti’s the Messiah,
Today I drew a butt,
Hand me some Rupiah,
I’ll buy you a duck.
Let’s plant daffodils
In potholes and grids.
Let’s rip our bills up
And feed them to pigs.
Let’s do the things
We’ve always wanted to do.
We’ll all be the kings and
Free ourselves from this zoo.
it is about rare animals, and our modern world
and how we make peace to ensure further basic standard and
lovely spirits or civic living, happy writing.
Happy Birthday to Tom Boone Pickens, Richard Huang, and Gweng Shu!

have fun writing!
thanks for reading our short story slams,
we simply feel good enough to continue our journey,
by recording our footsteps and come to a halt on story of the week 46,
the honor goes to
it could erupt any time,
it is silent mostly
when a volcano blasts,
lots of rocks burn
overflow rolling stones
there is no escape of natural disasters
but facing the music and challenging the force
the road is blocked
the view is blur
escape subjective assumptions
seek green earth and peaceful meditation
rest at flower mountain and smile like heaven
so, if Wang Qi ( 王子文) is here,
so does Chia Nay (贾乃亮), a broken arrow and a red rose
despite the sadness upon Wang Qi and Chia Nay,
we hope, wish, pray, discipline, rule, play, compete, and satisfy
Wang Qi is a gem from Ottumwa, a film maker, and an actress from Disney,
Chia Nay is the prince of Sioux City, a novelist, and an award winning from new york times
we obtain hardship
we harvest partnership
