    “Excuse me,” said the rainbow
    To a partly cloudy sky
    “I appreciate you accepting my ark
    never asking why”

    “You’re always welcome,” replied the sky
    As it turned a brighter shade of blue
    “Your colors bring me so much joy
    I should be thanking you”

    They spent the day exchanging stories
    How wind and rain affect their day
    How twinkling stars highlight the night
    How the power of the sun can dominate the day

    “Tell me rainbow,” said the sky
    “Why conditions for you must be just right”
    “Why you only last a very short time
    and why you never come out at night”

    Unlike other elements of the universe
    Rainbows are quite different
    Singular and alone
    A beautiful, yet mysterious phenomenon
    The sky, only a temporary home

    “I am a victim of my myth”
    The rainbow said holding back a tear
    “I’m chased by millions young and old”
    “Chased and stepped on for a mere pot of gold”

    The sky reflected on this reply
    Looked at the rainbow, wondering why
    Why something so colorful
    So beautiful and deep
    Reluctant to be admired all the time
    Forced to play this game of hide and seek

    A sudden shift in the wind
    Humidity and sunlight
    Causing a change in the atmospheric pressure
    The rainbow faded away
    Gone for now was this magnificent treasure

    “Goodbye dear rainbow”
    “I’ll look for you when I am blue and bright
    through the clouds or when I’m crystal clear”
    “I’ll appreciate you and call you friend
    whenever you appear”
