The Other End of the Rainbow

Updated: Apr 11, 2023


Dear Readers,

I hope that all of you had meaningful Seders!


For the next seven weeks, I will be working on writing a poem a day during the counting of the omer. I am not limiting myself to a theme, but using the opportunity to write and imagine a little each day.

The poem below is on the theme of being a grandparent and I am hopeful that it is a sentiment shared by some of you.

I won't be publishing these poems here on my blog, because that would be too many notifications for you, but if you would like to see the poems as they come out, please email me at leannshamash@gmail.com and I will send you them periodically as they come out.

We counted day 4 last night and I am busy imagining poem three...I am behind!

Have a wonderful day.

Leann


The Other End of the Rainbow


Is this the other side of the rainbow?

If it is, when did I arrive?


The other end of the rainbow

looks like home.

There are

blue skies

and a chilly

April breeze

and music

like the sound of rising laughter.


No witch’s feet under a broken house

at the end of this rainbow;

just the vision of children

running

on grass

painted

emerald green;

their long hair flying behind them

like kite tails.


Their

sturdy

little legs dancing,

leaping,

racing.


Boundless,

the rainbow

stretches before them.


Their voices ring loud,

the sound of echoes;

carried high

on the

April breeze,

but

fading,

fading,

as they scramble

up a green carpeted hill.


Perhaps they are searching for

the other end

of the rainbow?


Maybe,


but I know

that I

have

already

arrived.
