Life's Rainbow
Sheila Banani

Beginnings are lacquer red
fired hard in the kiln
of hot hope;

Middles, copper yellow
in sunshine,
sometimes oxidize green
with tears; but

Endings are always indigo
before we step
on the other shore.

Martz, sandra.=, Ed. (203). When I Am An Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple
