Nove Otto - Hollow

Saw a gorgeous double rainbow last month. Took my breath away :)

In vibrant hues the Rainbow smiles,
across the sky for many miles,
unaware, walks on life below,
engrossed in pixel sized beauty,
gizmo lights and I-pads flirty,
sadly sighs an aging willow
no longer buzz the Bumble bee,
or sway with wind the silent trees, 
concrete jungle remains hollow.

The Nove Otto poetry form was created by Scott J. Alcorn. It is a nine-lined poem with 8 syllables per line (isosyllabic). The rhyme scheme is as follows: aacbbcddc.

::Don't Miss out on previous poetry types::
Day 1 - A for Acrostic                                        
Day 2 - B for Blitz   
Day 3 - C for CinqTroisDecaLaRhyme                    
Day 4 - D For Diamente  
Day 5 - E for Essence                                       
Day 6 - F for Florette 
Day 7 - G for Ghazal 
Day 8 - H for Haiku 
Day 9 - I for Inverted Refrain  
Day 10 - J for Joseph Star
Day 11 - K for Kyrielle
