L’arc en ciel
Why is it that we look at rainbows
And we smile?
We call whoever is around
And point in wonder:
‘Look: a rainbow!’
To me it’s a closer touch of Divinity
Than the unicorn.
A reminder of beauty,
Of happy days.
A stop from mind-numbing chores,
A spark of hope, just enough of a reminder
It’s worthy to pull through.
So I’ll continue to show rainbows,
The flaming sunset over the sea,
The yellow in a little girl’s dress whilst she’s jumping in a muddy puddle,
The blades of grass swaying in the meadow and singing with the wind,
The hydrangea bluer than the sky above,
The octogenarian’s hug after taking my dance class,
My son’s laughter.
Yes, l’arc en ciel, the rainbow.
