The storm cleared
The rain had passed
Leaving behind red orange yellow green blue Indigo
The colors fill the evening sky with warmth and art
Each color as if it was a different stroke of a brush telling it’s own story.
But the masterpiece wasn’t finished yet
The colors darken
I look up at this masterpiece in ‘awe’
It is beautiful that you can find art in nature
Even in the afternoon sky.

In the style of Nikki Giovanni’s “Winter Poem”

    what a nice way to describe a rainbow, there are a few things you can remove and include but it’s good nonetheless
