Brilliant morning arriving. For Writer's Cramp prompt 7.13.21.
a grease puddle rainbow rippled,
greeted him on the cement. buffeted
breezes mussed his rainbow hair.
across the street he came to view
a colorful field. in panorama
his vision soared beyond
a dew-lit yellow sea,
frosted pink, near sunrise.
he reached the rainbow box
to clutch white mail. labels
lovingly adorned rectangles sorted
in hand, one by one. turning
to look upon verdant trees sheltering
a small house, above brown shutters.
dappled rainbow wings fluttered
in colorful, cooing delight.
the wind stung as it might.
he stepped over the remains
of a rainbow night
to rest on the porch stoop
with a glass jar light dimming,
yearned comparison to morn.
and it shattered his illusion.
much to this early delight,
it was rainbow, too.
