The Rainbow Brothers

Author:

Misbah has always wanted to pursue writing as a career. She loves to do poetry. She is conveying messages of love through her poetry.

The sun woke up for the first time,

For our sleeping land to wake up.

From the cocoon of the night flowed four skinny men.

Brethren, desirous of heat, life, and light.

Streaked with red veins, their fragile, transparent bodies.

Were covered with a thin cellophane dermis.


The sun can see 'em.

A chill so strongly decided to stop their fragility.

As a father of all colors,

He put four crayons in one raindrop.

As a slender elf, the drop precipitated,

Then, volatile steam liberated pencils.

With rapid Scribblings, colored mines,

From a different tint, one skin on each flesh.

They were thus clothed with the necessary clothing,

Which made them resist the great polar winter.

The sun provided them with various pigments,

To identify themselves in this white universe.


The color of the first, darker than brass,

Earned Him to be named by the others the African.

The second tint of copper, like a day of discoloration,

Was. Given the name of Indian.

The third, stripped of nitric jade,

Thus called the term Asiatic.

The appearance of the latter was opaline-white.

Everyone else called him Caucasian.

For the celebration, the sun had warmed them,

They caught hands and began to dance.

Filled with laughter and joy and intoxicated with happiness,

They became brothers right from the start.

They began to turn at such a speed,

That the circle they formed grew into shimmering pastels.


African, Asian, Indian, or Caucasian,

If you really think that we are one,

You can see by lowering your eyelids,

Beyond borders, much higher than the earth,

Very far in the universe, to light-years away,

The dazzling glow of a rainbow-brother love.
