#NaPoWriMo – Day 19 ~ #Didactic

Today’s prompt at NaPoWriMo is to write a didactic, or how-to poem. I’m going for the off the wall angle on this one. I do not typically rhyme poetry, but for some reason decided to this time.

How To Lasso A Rainbow

To lasso a rainbow is easier than it seems

Simply open your heart and believe in your dreams

Pick your favorite color and throw your rope high

Nothing’s off limits when you reach for the sky 

If your choice happens to be red, go for it with passion

When orange is your pick, you may wish to proceed in a more orderly fashion

Yellow it will be for some, they should keep their disposition sunny

Those chasing green should think sweet, healing honey

Blue, dreamy blue calls for peace and tranquility

While elusive indigo practically calls for psychic abilities

Magical violet calls for sweetness and light

At times it seems impossible, yet seek it you must with all of your might

Such beauty is always worth the trials of the quest

Never give up on the vision or fear the test

When you manage to get hold of it, pull it near

Hold it close to your heart, forever dear.
