RAINBOWS FOR BREAKFAST

RAINBOWS FOR BREAKFAST

One rainbow for her
Was nowhere near enough,
Not when she came from people
Who ate rainbows for breakfast.

Piled up like pancakes,
Pushing one after another
Into their waiting hearts.

More than aware that not one dream
Had much chance
Of coming true.

Yet shrugging her shoulders,
Turning her back on statistics,
Piling up rainbows, anyway.

Just on the off-chance
That her rainbows
Were as strong as she was.
