rainbows

If the sun is happiness

and rain is the tears

somewhere in the middle is the rainbow

Is it always there?

somewhere hidden

between a sunny joyful afternoon
and a quiet lonely rain

It’s what’s most in life

the moments in between

the happy and the sad

the colors of daily life.

And only sometimes

can you catch a glimpse of

its sweet and plain

unexpected spectacularness.
