Trying to make sense

Trying to make sense

Too many showers have fallen.
Clouds of turbulence
Disrupt my sunshiney disposition,
Create a storm in my life.

When unexpectedly
A brilliant, awe-inspiring rainbow
Leaves me breathless
And I long for the unattainable pot of gold

After captured in time
By the magic of photography,
The rainbow abruptly fades away
Leaving the nothingness that previously existed

The photograph of that rainbow
And the memory it represents remain
But in time, they too will fade.
