LIFE’S RAINBOW

Author: 
Sheila Banani

                                                                                                                                          Beginnings are lacquer red
fired hard in the kiln
of hot hope;
 
Middles, copper yellow
in sunshine,
sometimes oxidize green
with tears; but
 
Endings are always indigo
before we step
on the other shore.
