Rainbow Over Easy by Ben Nardolilli

Raibow Over Easy

Through the backyard branches of the trees

Plucked clean by season and an instinct

Hiding inside the hardened wood,

I gain access to a changing net of color

Taken in from the patterns in the sky,

There is the clear blue of a cracked heaven,

Then the gray fit to resemble the scales

Of a reptilian ghost winding overhead,

Best of all is the sun in its setting and rising

To make the branches a frame to hold

A stained glass window coming in twice a day.
