The Rainbow Child

Where does the rainbow end,

in your soul or on the horizon?” 

― Pablo Neruda, The Book of Questions

The colors of her kaleidoscope soul spill into the world
wherever she wanders and roams

Like satin ribbons streaming in zephyr’s arms,
she spreads her radiant purity everywhere

Painting this gorgeous earth in vivid shades
of rose-red, blue, green, and sun drenched yellow

She wears them with pride in a vibrant long dress
a sweet rainbow child singing, spreading love everywhere
as brilliant arced rainbows dance in her long hair
