Faded Rainbow


In the softest afterglow
Palest colours now unfold
Reaching further to the skies
Singing gentler lullabies
Remembering the songs of home
Wishing nowhere else to roam.

Slipping gently from the coat
Of heaviness to brighter dress
Hears the humming of the Light
Spinning, weaving thread so bright
Breathing now to last farewell
Soul slips through the mesh of Life.

Sailing on the sea of night
To new tomorrow’s clearer sight
Sees the faded rainbow’s glimmer
Now become the silent shimmer
Gleaming, prancing, light enhancing
Laughs, enraptured by the dancing.
