Have you ever slid on rainbows
to sleep in the arms of a bluemoon
or wake up on a cloud at noon?
Have you ever combed your hair
to catch falling pearls to wear
when riding a whale chasing hail?
Have you ever joined a line
with a hello tracing a goodbye like a spine
coiled around life’s dots into a punchline?
Not all rainbows are bright and in multi color
offering rides of joy and glamor;
Some are black with terror lined in clamor
offering rides on hurt’s roller coaster!
Life they say is full of broken clay
from surprises that overstay or betray
leaving souls to weigh yesterday against today.
For when the soul is frail fearing it may fail
following a trail read like braille; minds fail
to sail from need’s shore lacking faith’s gale
to blow care’s sails with reflections that don’t bail
on life, as hearts wail riding, on hurt’s whale
drunk on sorrow like ale, from chalices that derail
logic like a blinding veil, in tomorrow’s winding dale.
Tomorrow is a hollow in yesterday’s morrow
until faith with joy conquer sorrow in one blow
like a sun shoots down clouds to show hope’s rainbow
to harrow sorrow’s billow like a bellow from a cello.
It’s up to you to go up with hope’s rainbow
or bellow with sorrow in a morrow so raw.
