Where the Rainbow Takes Me

The shades keep growing around me,

I see blue, yellow,

orange specs

as I dive deeper

they turn hazy

after a thousand steps

they’re still a bit ahead

just one more step, a breath

keeps me apart

from golden enchantment,

not touching that one hue

I long to keep at last

the turquoise in becoming

my own tomorrow.

I walk inside the rainbow

seeing again the underworld

I may be above sea

but I look deeper

than the mountains.

The rainbow travels

between hearts,

it raises memories,

the smile

held behind gates that open

to the sound

of joyful laughter.
