The Careless Clouds

A rainbow spreads its colors

Across the face of a bright blue sky

Unique and vibrant arcs of light

Shimmering against the floating water

But then the rain or the clouds take it away

Because it isn’t dark like they are

It’s too different to be accepted

But then comes another day, another rainbow

And there are so many others all over the world

And they all get carelessly criticized by the clouds and the rain

Until they are taken away again

But the sun thinks the rainbows are beautiful

Why else would he put them there?

For people and clouds to laugh and stare?

No, they exist because they are lovely

And just as great as the clouds and the rain

Different is beautiful
