Rainbow

Standing
On the edge
Of sunshine
And rain.
I look heavenwards
Searching for her.
She looks down
Upon me
From her perch
High
In the clouds.
Wearing her robe
Seven colored
Each for a mood,
A mood of mine.

Why is she sad
Frowning at me,
Reflecting an emotion
I feel no more?
Her frown
Fills the skies
From cloud to cloud
From earth to heaven
From heaven to earth.

Is she sad
At a world
That is straight,
Or is she smiling
With the world
Upturned;
Topsy turvy,
Turvy topsy,
Right side up,
Wrong side down,
Frowning at me,
Smiling at heavens
For me?

Frown at me?
She does not.
No idea has she
That I even exist.

Smiles, she gives
To The heavens
For that is what
Makes her smile.

I turn up,
Stand on my head,
Watch the heavens
And smile,
Watching her
Smile.
