To taste a rainbow

These days when muddy rain pools on sidewalks,

People shove past you, blank-faced,

On the way to somewhere else;

These days when an oppressive sky

Glares down between the office towers,

And traffic jams rip your nerves to shreds,

It’s then I wish that clouds were really chariots

That I could ride upon,

To get way high up above the storm

And see a glimpse of that world beyond;

When the rain lashes against your face,

And you know that people do not care

With their own lives all-consuming –

It’s then I long to taste the rainbow,

To touch that iridescent arch of hope

And know that Heaven is for real.
