You said I cannot catch a rainbow.
Rainbows are for fairies and leperchauns.
Someone as ordinary as me does not stand a chance
to lure a rainbow into my hands.
But I know something enchanted folks don’t –
Rainbows are children of Rain and Sun
and I can stand under the rain
and I can bask under the sun
I can dance and spin around in their meeting ground:
I will not only have a rainbow,
I can be one.
The poem was inspired by my then 5 year old son’s statement “You cannot catch a rainbow, Mommy.” 🙂
