[Light after rain]

Light after rain
comes in several flavours –
there’s golden summer dazzle
which, oddly, comes only in spring

year-round, there’s glad-to-be-home orange
or welcome-to-this-unknown-planet indigo
or approaching-destination gray
or white, as in all-things-can-be-made-new
and, of course, ice-purple and diamond-blue

or a trick colour like magenta or cyan –
played only in the mind of man
but which binds you forever to the dream
that things really are much more than they seem

.

[So Newton’s prism is NOT the be-all-end-all colour scheme]
