Rainbow Flickers - Poem by John Roche

Morning breaks.
Shafts of rainbow's light
flood the stained windows
of last week's existence.

The radiance plays
iridescent games
in the shadows of my slumber,
forcing recognition
of a new beginning.

I peel back the shutters,
exposing the dim recesses
to the new day,
and wonder what may lie in store
at the end of that rainbow.
