Chased By Rainbows

My rear-view mirror

spells it out –

I’m chased by rainbows,

tailed by dreams.

The sun over my shoulder uses

what storm clouds brewed

and funnels formed

to redeem my back-trail;

car tires churn

and toss a spray

that, when hit by brilliance,

pursues my past

with glory personified.


The rain was just breaking up this morning when I glanced in my rearview mirror. ย I was, in truth, being chased by rainbows. ย What a lovely thought, that my past can be redeemed and made into something beautiful!
