Her ever fleeting colors
enrich this rain drenched sky
with a lifespan
that is of the merest of moments
having been born amid the storms tears of joy
by dancing in their light.
Could it be that aware of her setting sun
she elected to celebrate this moment
fleeting though it may be?
with an appreciation born of brevity,
she chooses to honor every moment left under her care
while even the sun
admires this courageous stand.
