birds who fly with the rainbow

birds who fly upon rainbows

weaving their way through the colors 

pondering the waves below

watching as sailboats drift into rainbow light

swoop down to touch the sea

and then land in a nearby palm tree

watching serenely 

as clouds of many shapes drift by 

flying

drifting through the clouds

you go fast

you see light 

and it flashes around past your eyes

your face

but the focus is so precise 

the focus rests to the destination 

and piercing through rainbow clouds

in the air you are in the drift

you fly over land

over water

free as a bird

so keep moving

keep smiling

close your eyes

the smile is a warrior’s smile

but it is never war, anger, fear or hatred that fuels this kind of protector 

it is deep full overwhelming 

like a bubbling spring

it is the kind of love that there is no good word for

yes, so high

so pure

real, you can touch it

you can see it

you can know it

and in the sky

you fly above 

high above the ground

gliding

gliding

gliding across the sky
