Poem: Touching Rainbows

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Touching Rainbows" is a poem about venturing off together after being secluded by Covid-19's grasp.

We wanted to feel the beauty of God's land touch us.

Even on the rainy days, his hand guided us towards rainbows.

Touching Rainbows

As the gates fly open,

we race down the fairway

to beat the crowd,

before the doors slam shut.


Hoping to feel the long-awaited magic

touch our bones,

healing the emptiness

as we see the beauty of God's land.


Tears from heaven

on a sulky, rainy day,

guide us with his loving hands

to a destination full of rainbows.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.

They must be felt with the heart.
