The questions grow in number as I age,
my fears increase, my doubts enlarge.
There is no wisdom I have found by now.
Of all the certainties I knew not one survived.

The rainbows come and go these days,
and you once told me I should chase them.
I promised I would try.

I do not even know you understand me anymore. Yet
once I thought our wavelength was the same.
There is so much I should not bother telling.

Of all the certainties the only one that shall remain
is that a rainbow feels like silk. Just go and touch it.
The question is not how it’s done. Nor to succeed.
I hope I got you chasing.

  1. Beautiful, moving and delicately observed as always. Love joins what nothing else can bridge I like to think!

  2. Soft and pastel….lovely.

  3. Yeah, you got me chasing. I packed lunch and a change of top in case it’s a long chase.
