“Reaching the Rainbow”

Like multicolored blossoms

The rainbow grew, so close to me.

I could almost touch it.

Red glistened in mid-air, as if

Waiting for the world to start.

The others followed, transparent,

Then translucent. I reached out

Wanting to bring the colors

Into my soul, grasped elusive

Air. The arch began to

Dissipate, to fall apart like

Dreams that almost,

But don’t, come true.
