Somewhere Over The Rainbow

the bigger the storm, the brighter your rainbow

Face it, we’re all facing pretty big storm-clouds , and it doesn’t look as though they’re going to blow over any time soon.  So let’s all look for the silver lining, and hope that we find a rainbow shining through.  It’s either a nightmare, or a dream ~ you choose.

A change from Judy Garland, and I like this version of the classic song.

Please listen with a smile on your face.

With thanks to my friend Paula Light for the inspiration.

rainbows that arch in the sunlight

with colours that gracefully blend

a voice in the peace of the night

soft with real love for a friend

my lady, I am your knight
