RAINBOW (Excerpt from “Scattered Petals”)


So a rainbow then

Is a promise to us all

No matter what,

We will survive –

After the rain

And when there is no rain.


I have heard of pots of gold

And do not believe this myth

I have searched and come up dry

And have grown tired, cold and old


In the spring when rain is heavy

I climb through my terrace window

I am struck my midnight beauty

No color but the stars


Shine on in the night

When all the world can see you

When colors do not matter

And all is black and white


In the morning wake up singing

Usher in the light of day

The spectrum is there before you

Turn up the volume and see
