April 18

some days I am yellow
brighter than the sun
but if you ask the right questions
my illumination may come undone

some days I am gray
a cloud just waiting to pour down
but with just the right smile
that can be turned around

but most days I am like a rainbow
with hues in a painted spray
a kaleidoscope of color
balancing the strokes of each day
