Rainbow Sonnet

Have you heard of the rainbow story
With a pot of gold at the end?
Such incredible tale of hope,
A positive message to send.

As children, we’d see a rainbow
And remember the tale of old—
Longing to find the rainbow’s end
To discover the pot of gold.

But there is a rainbow for all
As life’s opportunities come.
And those are the ones we chase,
Where such ‘gold’ might be from.
Hum, hope is sparked for all these years
Whenever a rainbow appears.
