A Rainbow

The screen door squeaks, slams
behind me and a chill, a thrill
grabs my shoulders
and slows my steps.

Like glitter glued on cardboard
the sidewalk glistens. But the colors
I crave drape above me, high
around me. As far as I reach,
I finger paint shades inside me.

A stripe of blue, I swipe and twirl
myself into a hoola hoop.

A pale purple, I pinch and top
my head with a flat hat.

And yellow, I clutch with both arms, 
shape it into a ball and toss it, heave it
above my house

to erase the lightening and the rain.
