A Rainbow Future After the Storm
Soft dove clouds transform to dolphin dark,
again change, and roaring black wolves
with a flash, then
the shrouded monochrome world becomes a tapestry,
a multitude of shape, color, hues. Here, a strand of azure,
here, emerald-green, glistening with diamond sparkle, woven
under and over
embroidered with the vibrant wishes of children—blue horses, red deer,
twinkling golden stars, a spotted purple dog, a striped-orange cat—
a collection, a connection of
smiling faces brighter than the sun,
dream of a rainbow future–
after the storm has passed.
There was a mixup with the images, so Kerfe has been given her own day! So, this is Day 31 of the challenge, Kerfe Day. You can read the rest of the poems here. Once again, thank you to all the artists and poets. It’s been a wonderful, creative challenge.
I don’t know why, but this song went through my head as I started to write.
I wish everyone would read this and believe it can happen 🙂 Lovely.
Thank you! 😀
Lovely, Merril! Enjoy your Saturday.😉
Thank you, Jill! You, too!
This is such a perfect ending to your month of poetry!!! Thank you for posting the Kermie video. I haven’t listened to that song in years. It was good to hear it again. Here’s to seeking our rainbow connection!
Such a beautifully woven rainbow tapestry, with an eye to the future
Thank you very much, Derrick.
Such a happy song to accompany Kerfe’s wonderful collage. Also thank you for the Kermit video: I’ve just enjoyed that with the kids 😊
Thank you, and you’re welcome!
Children are our future. But you say it much more beautifully. And Sesame Street! Such a wonderful legacy of spirit and song. (K)
Thank you very much, and thank you for the lovely image!
Reblogged this on The Wombwell Rainbow.
Thank you, Paul.
Thank you, Luanne!
I had to wait for the song to end because I didn’t want it to cut off when I posted my comment! What a perfect ending to this excellent poem. Now I have such a feel-good feeling! Thank you, Merril!
Thank you, and you’re very welcome. I’m glad you enjoyed poem and song! 😀
I really did. And how can anyone NOT love Kermit singing that very song?
I agree. I love Kermit.
Such a hopeful, uplifting poem, and the bonus of Kermit singing 🙂
Thank you! I love Kermit. 😀
What a wonderful piece! Plus, I adore the Rainbow Connection, so that was a bonus 🙂
Thank you so much! I love Kermit. 😀
Rainbow Connection is my husband and my song🥰 He sings it to me all the time!
Awww! How sweet! 😍
