Sunshine through the squall

rainbow arching to the west –

pot of tea, steeping.

.

Feral cat sleeping

in her bed outside the door –

steam rises from trees.

I’ll see you

in each color

of the rainbow

inside a bubble

foaming

on the sea.

.

I’ll find you

on the wing

of a hummingbird

or at the bottom

of a spot

of tea.

.

I’ll meet you

in the middle

of an Oreo

somewhere

on the edges

of a rhyme.

.

I’ll love you

at the tip

of the hour hand

resting

on the backside

of time.

Shower from the east,

magic sunshine in the west

rainbow up her sleeve.

She would sate his fevered brow

with the coolness

of a gauzy cloud

until it rained

upon the mountains

filling streams

with tall white water

rushing eager to the sea.

 .

And he would lift her

to the shore

and lay her down

on seaweed

where together

they would turn to mist,

and next time that it rained

the sky

would wear a double bow.

Fresh bundle of rain

sweeps in sideways on the wind

tied up in a bow.

A little weird, but maybe this will resonate on an intuitive level.

(From 1995, and related to previous poem.)

.

In the red room

we awoke

from spectral dreams.

 .

In the orange room

we opened up

the blinds.

 .

In the yellow room

we saw

past the horizon.

 .

In the green room

we balanced

on our toes.

 .

In the blue room

we flew

out the window.

 .

In the indigo room

we landed

on the sun.

.

In the violet room

we slept

in mother-of-pearl.

 .

In the red room

we awoke

from spectral dreams.
