    While congratulating MzBlkAngel on her ten thousandth post, I noticed that $$RICH$$ has almost 34,000. 34,000!!!! Thats amazing to me. That level of dedication, discipline and devotion to this community is OutStanDing and should be recognized and saluted. In $$RICH$$'s honor and in praise of the quality of character he has demonstrated, I post the following:

    Black Rainbow

    An arc of spectral colors.
    The refractive dispersion of sunlight in raindrops.
    The bending of a wave path at the boundary
    between two different mediums.

    To scatter, disseminate bent sun rays in drops of
    two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen.

    Sounds easy but have you ever tried to make a rainbow?
    That’s what we’ve got to do
    Gather our refracted people
    Our scattered broken hearts
    Two parts human being
    One part use to seeing
    So much inhumanity
    We almost stopped believing
    That we can be redeemed
    Fulfill our destiny
    Become the Rainbow Nations
    That We are meant to be.

    Well then, let me throw in the third motion. What a beautiful scribe in and of itself, the imagery of the rainbow was spectacular. And the ode to Rich was wonderful and so deserving. Much respect to you on this oldsoul, much respect!!!!

    :spinstar: "BLACK RAINBOW" :spinstar:

    Since I am very much a part of these scattered pieces of this "Rainbow" ..I feel more than compelled to say, this is a beautiful piece in itself, and as much as it's your rainbow $$RICH$$... it's ours.
    Oldsoul ...you get a ^5 for this one, as you seem to work wonders with "Words"
    Let's collectively gather the pieces and bring forth...that beautiful...

    :spinstar: "BLACK RAINBOW" :spinstar:

    awesome lay-out ...from one of the scattered pieces of the rainbow.​
