My Rainbow of Hope by Bhargavi Ravindra

At times,

I love to stand alone

And watch the world pass by

See the dust rise

Towards the sky!

I tie my hope ...

My balloon of Hope 

I let it float

In the limitless expanse of the blue

And the child in me 

celebrates this moment of ecstasy!

Immensely pleased 

hugely satisfied,

I sail through the euphoria 

My eyes are glued

Lest my Hope is lost in the blue wilderness

I feel the Sharp pain, 

slowly, the tears start gathering 

And suddenly -

There is a tiny drop on my hand

Sun rays pass thru it,,

And out of blue 

I see a rainbow

Am I amused ?

I see my hope spread across the sky 

Like a rainbow!

And suddenly 

Sky turns dark

The thick clouds 

Have just gathered

I look at the tiny drop on my hand

I inadvertently glance upwards

Then cast my eyes downwards

A rain drop 

Or, a tear drop?

I see

My Rainbow of Hope ....

So magical, mesmerisingly beautiful

Slowly spreading across the blue expanse

sending my world in ecstatic tizzy 

Then slowly retreating behind the clouds

I know, nothing can hide my ray of hope

Breaking the barrier of cloud 

It will emerge 

more vibrant, more alluring 

Even if it has to disappear,

Behind the clouds.

Yet, I know 

It has come to stay within me

I am happy 

I let the world go by!

And I watch in awe 

The dust settle down 

Slowly, eventually !

My Rainbow of Hope in my heart

I happily shut my eyes,

And, wait for the New Dawn!
