A rainbow

I saw a rainbow,

driving home.

It stretched in its perfection

across the drizzling sky,

shimmering into the water.


Like Poseidon’s dream

Its effortless prism

of colour

invaded the sky.


It was beyond

the will of human kind

to create

or destroy:

giving when it will

and going when it wants

to stay no more.


Its colours

and delicious curves,

permanent and temporal,

strike my grey day;

sparking my dull mood

with an epiphany.


And I laugh,

oh how I laugh,

a delicate little

ironic laugh.
