Soul's journey from low to high.
Life soars on the wings of delight
unaware of fate’s blind snare,
rides on the crest of wind, a thrilling flight
on a cool, cloudless day without a care.
Unforeseen, lightning stings
summoning the fury of rain,
dealt colorful life, a lacerating
blow, to split and fall apart in pain.
Rainbows arch above, welcoming
the soul, freed of chains of attachment
the prison of physical longings,
to lofty fields of glorious enrichment.
Prompt words: soar rainbow wings delight field sting colorful wind
