- Rainbows -

Out the window is rain
Falls gently and makes patterns on the sidewalk.
Soft sounds of raindrops calm me
as I inhale the moist air.
Vibrating, drops reach the surface.
Millions come in seconds.
Bursts of thunder and sparks of lightning
Erupting from the distance,
Shaking the Earth
Drops charge
in a race to the ground below.
Slowly, the clouds part.
The fog fades, the rain stops.
As I look up to see
a rainbow that had been there all along.
