Hot night,
last of the thunderclouds
roll by
to beat against the mountains
leaving
the sultry warmth of this day
behind.

Not
a worthless day, though -
I saw
the biggest rainbow
arching
across the afternoon sky,
made me
remember all those tales,
Noah
and his sign of hope,
Bifrost,
bridge of the gods,
Indra's bow
shooting the lightning -
Confusing
like most things in life.
Still,
it was pretty.

I put
an icy glass of water
wetly cool
against my hot cheek,
thinking
of what the winter will bring.
A rainbow, one of the biggest I'd seen - arching across the sky one hot summer's afternoon. Got me thinking.

You're welcome friend... Well I thought it was good but who cares what people think you're the one that needs to be satisfied with it...

It said what I wanted it to say; but sometimes, I just get insecure! LOL. Thanks. I do appreciate the feedback.
