I saw rainbow with black and white eyes
Encircling the horizon past rain
An entrance to another world beyond
But more than a minute, does it remain?

I saw rainbow fiddling the grey clouds…
That littered around, crying and wet
As much as it rose above,
Its feet below began to fade

I saw rainbow in eternal love with sunshine
Shy, bemused, still untamed…
Yet the reason of its very existence
Is but to the occurence of rain
