Gift-Wrapping

What they've told you about the rainbow
isn't true.

A rainbow's just a ribbon tied around
a gift wrapped in sky-blue paper--
the world, hanging on a branch
of gravity, the limb of Sol.

Small rainbows are everywhere,
in drops of salt spray, broken decanters,
the plunge pool at Latourelle Falls
and the sprinklers on the neighbor's lawn.

Angels spend a lot of time
tying each one just so. You ought
to pay attention to them!

Collection available! Knocking from Inside
